New romantic comedy Netflix available since April 10, Love Wedding Repeat is written and directed by the British Dean Craig, to whom we owe the hilarious Happy Funeral and Moonwalkers but also the scenario of My Stupid Dog by Yvan Attal. An Italian-British production, Love Wedding Repeat takes you to Rome for a sumptuous wedding that will turn into disaster. The cast of this romantic comedy includes Freida Pinto, Sam Claflin, Olivia Munn, Eleanor Tomlinson and Joel Fry.
Despite Jack’s willingness to ensure a perfect ceremony for his sister Hayley, unforeseen elements will disrupt the day. Jack can’t help but seduce Dina, whom he has always loved. Fate will give him a hand since, depending on the placements of the guests, Jack will live alternative versions of the marriage. But this opportunity does not come without obstacles: devilish exs invite themselves to marriage, a sedative is lost and schoolboy jokes come to irritate each other’s egos. One marriage, several ends. But which will be the happiest?
The remake of a French film
If you are familiar with the synopsis of Love Wedding Repeat, it is no coincidence that the film Netflix is the remake of a French film from 2012! It is Plan de Table, produced by Christelle Raynal, which stages a marriage disturbed by the unforeseen change of the table plan after lovemaking between the bride and her ex on her wedding day. This game of musical chairs, experienced in different versions by the protagonists, leads to hilarious sequences and schoolboy gags which will have consequences for their future.
Presented at the opening of the fifteenth edition of the Alpe d’Huez festival, Plan de Table is the first feature film by Christelle Raynal, previously specializing in advertising spots. On the casting side, the film is supported by Elsa Zylberstein, Audrey Lamy, Franck Dubosc, Shirley Bousquet, Arié Elmaleh, Mathias Mlekuz, Lannick Gautry and Louise Monot. For the Italian-British adaptation Love Wedding Repeat, director Dean Craig worked with Francis Nief, the screenwriter of Plan de Table.
