UP FOR LOVE/UN HOMME À LA HAUTEUR ★★★

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS | FILM -

Di­rected by Lau­rent Ti­rard. Star­ring Vir­ginie Efira, Jean Du­jardin Efira is in love with Du­jardin. She’s per­fect. He’s suc­cess­ful but, de­spite be­ing played by a gi­ant ,- ter­ri­bly short. This re­make of the 2013 Ar­gen­tine-Brazil­ian film Co­razón de León was a huge hit in France. Though it does over­work its gag, it is ev­ery­thing we might once have ex­pected from an Sch­warzeneg­ger high-con­cept com­edy. Is it po­lit­i­cally cor­rect to cast a tall per­son in this role? Or is it po­lit­i­cally in­cor­rect to even won­der such a thing? It’s funny enough, any­way. Club, lim re­lease, 98 min TB
