If you fancy something a bit breezy and nothing too serious, Heartbreaker is the perfect remedy - and probably best you see it now, before the inevitable American remake hits our screens.

Slickly orchestrated by director Pascal Chaumeil, Heartbreaker never leaves one in any doubt about its ultimate fairytale destination, although there are several amusing detours along the way.

Yes, Heartbreaker is diverting, intermittently charming and occasionally funny, but it is also a jumble of jammed-together notions. Unevenly paced, it goes on too many tangents to cohere as a persuasive comic fable about love and money.
