The cult romantic comedy by Richard Curtis is broadcast on TF1 this Sunday, December 11 from 9:10 p.m. This choral film with the jewel of British cinema in the cast looks back on different love stories that are more or less long, more or less happy, and more or less romantic. The feature film quickly established itself as a classic of the genre! If the film is very well known, did you know that a quick sequel was released in 2017?
Entitled Red Nose Day Actually, this short film serves both as a charity event to support Red Nose day, the equivalent of the English telethon, but also as a sequel to the romantic comedy released thirteen years earlier.

Synopsis – A Prime Minister (Hugh Grant) secretly in love with his charming collaborator, a writer (Colin Firth) cheated on by his girlfriend and who falls in love with a Portuguese woman to the point of learning her language, a rock-star on the comeback who promotes his latest single… All these characters and many more cross paths at Juliet’s wedding (Keira Knightley) and Peter, or on a doorstep, and each of them will illustrate the vagaries of love life in their own way. Betrayals, failures, brotherly love, shy relationships or inflamed passions, men and women in search of love follow each other but are not alike.
