HEARTBREAKER (2010) SBS ONE, 9.30PM, ROMANCE
They say breaking up is hard to do. But they haven’t met Alex (Romain Duris). He’s the head of a relationshipwrecking crew that, for a hefty fee, will save a good woman from the wrong man. But after encountering a cashflow problem involving the mob, Alex reluctantly accepts a tough assignment: persuading a well-to-do wine trader, Juliette (Vanessa Paradis), to part company with her too-good-to-be-true British fiancé (Andrew Lincoln). An uncharacteristically spry and wired comic performance from Duris, which is simply pitch perfect, make this a lively and enjoyable French rom-com.
