“I’m too romantic. Love should be simple.” Music Box Films has revealed an official US trailer for an indie romantic comedy called The Nature of Love from Quebec. This French-language Canadian comedy first premiered at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival last year, and is just now getting a summer debut in limited US theaters. The original title is Simple comme Sylvain in French, or Simple as Sylvain, referring to the man she falls for in this film. Sophia’s life is turned upside down when she meets Sylvain. She’s from a wealthy family, while Sylvain comes from a large family of manual workers. Sophia questions her own values after abandoning herself to her great romantic impulses – she enjoys sleeping with Sylvain much more following 10 years of marriage and can’t stop. So what comes next for her? Starring Magalie Lépine-Blondeau as Sophia and Pierre-Yves Cardinal as Sylvain, plus Monia Chokri, Francis-William Rhéaume, Steve Laplante, Marie-Ginette Guay, Micheline Lanctôt, and Guillaume Laurin. I wrote a positive review of this last year, though others seem to enjoy it while some really dislike it. It’s a very spunky, quirky, kinky film (with tons of sex) and some nice modern twists that do make you wonder about romance & love & sex.

Here’s the official US trailer (+ poster) for Monia Chokri’s The Nature of Love, direct from YouTube:

Sophia, a 40-year-old philosophy professor, has been in a stable and conventional marriage to Xavier for a decade. From gallery openings to endless dinner parties, ten years have flown by… When Sophia meets Sylvain, a craftsman renovating the couple’s new country house, Sophia’s world is turned upside down. The two begin a passionate affair fueled by their irresistible physical connection. However, Sophia comes from a wealthy family of intellectuals, while he comes from a working-class family of manual workers. As they get to know each other on a deeper level, Sophia begins to question her own values after abandoning herself to her great romantic impulses. Writer / director Monia Chokri delivers a smart and sexy romantic comedy film, infusing it with spiky energy and fresh perspective, upending genre and gender conventions.

The Nature of Love, also known as Simple comme Sylvain (or As Simple as Sylvain translated) in French, is written and directed by Quebecois actress / writer / filmmaker Monia Chokri, also director of the films A Brother’s Love and Babysitter previously, plus a few shorts. It’s produced by Sylvain Corbeil, Nancy Grant, Elisha Karmitz, and Nathanaël Karmitz. This initially premiered at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival last year in the Un Certain Regard section (read our review). Music Box Films will debut The Nature of Love in select US theaters starting July 5th, 2024 this summer. For more info, visit their official site. Who’s interested?
