Monsieur & Madame Adelman

Nicolas Bedos

France, 2016 / 120 min / French OV / Dramatic Comedy

A couple’s journey. - Carte Blanche Orange Luxembourg

The funeral of a famous writer. Amid all the tributes pouring in, some of the mourners question the strange circumstances of his death. A young biographer asks the widow to tell their story, from the very beginning. After all, wasn’t she his muse, his first reader and his companion right from the 1970s? The result is a retrospective spanning almost fifty years of a partnership marked by jealousy, deception, passion and happiness. During the story, regrets resurface, but so do recollections of times spent together, precious and full of love.


This quirky comedy marks the directorial debut of comedian Nicolas Bedos, featuring the same unique spirit that characterises his sketches.
