SYNOPSIS

Diane is a beautiful woman. A very beautiful woman. The kind that turns heads wherever she goes. She is a brilliant lawyer with a good sense of humor and a strong personality. And since she’s just walked out of an unhappy marriage, she’s free to meet the man of her life. There’s no such thing as a coincidence. One evening Diane receives a phone call from a certain Alexandre who found her cell phone. Something clicks between them almost instantly during this phone call. Alexandre is polite, funny and visibly cultivated. Diane is under his spell. They rapidly make a date. But their meeting doesn’t go quite as expected.


 
 

프로그램 노트

Is it possible for a 175cm tall woman to love a man
 whose height is 140cm? Starring Jean DUJARDIN,
 the first French actor to win the Academy Best Actor
 award with the film Artist (2011) and plays the role
 of this short architect Alexander, and VIrginie EFIRA,
 who is a famous rom-com actress and will be playing
 the role of the lawyer Diane who falls in love with
 Alexander, Up For Love is one of the popular films to
 be screened during this year\'s 18th SIWFF. This film is
 considered to be a \'popular\' film in terms of its genre,
 the starring actors, and the movie studio (Gaumont).
 But the film goes beyond that and challenges the
 stereotypical image of \'\"normal love\' and \'the standard
 of masculinity\' and elevates the status of the standard
 romantic comedy genre.
 In the film, the reversal in the height difference
 between these two leading characters is the biggest
 obstacle that hinders their love and relationship.
 Something to take note of in particular is the means
 Alexander uses to survive as an abnormally short and
 less than masculine man, and the changes Diane
 goes through to break the fantasy and ideal image
 of the relationship between a male and female that
 is set by society. These standards and assumptions
 regarding love and masculinity set by society and
 therefore internalized by individuals make things
 awkward and not easy for Alexander and Diane,
 and forces them to just look at value of physical
 appearance and nothing else. Love is often an
 uncomfortable, strange, and an inexplicable feeling,
 and this films goes to show that you only get a happy
 ending when you can courageously embrace that
 complicated feeling. [Sunah KIM]
