    Ripples of laughter and bursts of applause following the screening of the new film by Pierre Salvadori, the best confectioner of comedies in France. We’ve never seen Adèle Haenel like this before. This comedy is a renewal of the genre. Great pacing, brilliantly written, The Trouble with You is heady like champagne – and even more magic, because it reflects who we are: an audience thirsty for emotions.

    Jacques Morice, Télérama

    Carried by an excellent cast, Pierre Salvadori’s comedy is inhabited by a poetic density which keeps on increasing up to a surprisingly dreamy summit. Its funniness combines efficiency, inventiveness, intelligence and sensitivity. 'The Trouble with You' is a marvel of French comedy.

    Bruno Deruisseau, Les Inrockuptibles

    The Trouble with You is a joyous, complex, clever, poetic and crazy comedy… A total success. Bravo!

    Thomas Baurez, Studio

    A romantic farce that couldn’t be more preposterous or delightfully goofy. A sexy, funny performance from Adèle Haenel. A polished crowd-pleaser, ‘Trouble’ could be a winning attraction.

    Tim Grierson, Screen Daily

    Exhilarating ... As crazed and lawless as the action gets in either the real or imagined scenarios, or those that blur the two, it's the underlying sweetness of The Trouble With You that makes it so pleasurable.
