The charming romantic comedy MADAME – set against the backdrop of luscious Paris and sumptuous cuisine – is set for release on Thursday, 26 April 2018 at South African cinemas nationwide (ahead of the Freedom Day long weekend).
Synopsis: Adding a little spice to a waning marriage, Anne (Toni Collette) and Bob (Harvey Keitel), a wealthy and well-connected American couple, move into a manor house in romantic Paris. While preparing a particularly luxurious dinner for sophisticated international friends, our hostess discovers there are 13 guests. Panic-stricken, Anne insists her loyal maid Maria (played by the iconic Rossy de Palma – best known for her roles in Pedro Almodovar’s early masterpieces) disguise herself as a mysterious Spanish noble woman to even out the numbers. But a little too much wine, and some playful chat, lead Maria to accidentally endear herself to a dandy British art broker. Their budding romance will have Anne chasing her maid around Paris and finally plotting to destroy this most unexpected and joyous love affair.
