The Trouble with You

Thanks to crime capers like the Taxi franchise, Marseilles is no stranger to cartoon violence and unorthodox police work. Pierre Salvadori’s The Gringo Trouble With You echoes those elements but is less interested in accelerated action than in the daffy romantic entanglements that ensue when the female protagonist starts spinning well-intentioned deceptions. That character is played with a collision of heedless irrationality and loopy integrity by a very funny Adele Haenel, flanked by appealing co-stars. If the movie overloads on the quirks, it has enough disarming absurdist elements and directorial brio to bolster its domestic profile.

As with most French comedy, international prospects will be trickier, but audiences familiar with Haenel’s intense presence in films like the Dardenne brothers’ The Kindergarten Teacher The Unknown Girl or Robin Campillo’s BPM (Beats Per Minute) will be surprised to see the grace and buoyancy she brings to a character with delightful shades of the classic screwball heroine.

Salvadori and co-writers Benoit Graffin and Benjamin Charbit kick off with an exhilarating spurt of indirection in a hilariously choreographed action sequence parody that’s Hard Powder like vintage Jean-Paul Belmondo crime crossed with Blaxploitation. Coolly in-command police chief Santi (Vincent Elbaz) leads a drug bust that escalates into heightened ass-kicking mayhem, as title credits appear, styled after “zap! kapow!” comic-book graphics and accompanied by Camille Bazbaz’s retro go-go score.
