Looking for love... at first height.

French rom-com starring Oscar winner Jean Dujardin (The Artist) as a vertically impaired but charming man courting a tall female lawyer (Virginie Efira).

"Diane (Efira) is a successful lawyer three years removed from her divorce, and she has been romantically challenged ever since. But her luck changes one afternoon when a stranger calls her flat, having found her cell phone and wanting to return it.

Over the phone, Alexandre (Dujardin) is both funny and charming, and the pair develop an easy chemistry with each other, leading to a date of sorts to return her lost phone. Eagerly arriving at the appointed time and place, Diane is caught completely off-guard when Alexandre arrives—all 4'6" of him. (He literally has to hop up into his café chair.)

"At first his stature makes Diane uncomfortable, but she soon discovers that Alexandre is pretty much the complete package—witty, intelligent, handsome - so who cares if she has to bend down to kiss him? However, Alexandre and Diane will have to face many other romantic challenges, including a full-sized rival as well as public gawking and the judgement of society, if they are going to make it to their happily-ever-after in this delightful comedic romp." - (Seattle International Film Festival)
