French private eye LUIGI PRIMO (Sergio Castellitto) is hired to track down France Robert (Sandrine Kiberlain), the beautiful runaway bride of a Marseilles nightclub owner in À Vendre, a 1998 French film. Seems she not only took a powder, but also made off with a wad of loot.
The film consists mostly of a series of taped progress reports, as the divorced private detective tries to track down the missing woman by reconstructing her life, interviewing her parents, former boyfriends and past acquanitances in Paris, Grenoble, and Marseilles.
But that's just the plot device -- the real focus of the film is France, a quirky and captivating free spirit who seems to sleep with every man she meets... and then charges him for it. Even Luigi, an Italian who moved to France to marry a French lawyer and is now divorced, finds himself falling under France's spell.
