France Boutique

A film by Tonie Marshall


France has been married to Oliver for ten years. Together they have set up a TV shopping company, of which they are the star presenters: France Boutique. They are surrounded by a lot of people: Estelle, presenter, naturally sexy, lucid and hardworking; Yvan, presenter, torn between his distinct singularity and his taste for consensus; and Marcus, director, abounding in enthusiasm for new ideas and the discovery of young actresses... But they are constantly repeating the same patterns, surprising each other less and less, even when alone together... They find a partner, an Internet company managed by Sofia who has one single goal: lead them to ruin so they can be bought out for next-to-nothing. She also sets a trap for them... The magic of live television will surprise our characters and seduce the viewers. Everything can begin anew, perhaps.
