Journalist Juliette is writing a series of articles on relationships. Single pop neighbour Tristan decides to develop a board game based on relationships - a sort of love Monopoly - aimed at the couples’ market. They collaborate on the research by interviewing men, women, couples, introduction agencies, bridal wear salesmen, bar staff etc. Le Marché du couple consists of that series of interviews, and if that wasn’t exciting enough, there’s a fair amount of statistics thrown in free. The film ends with the launch of the game.

 

For sheer entertainment value, Le Marché sits somewhere between having a favourite tooth extracted and having your brain removed via your left nostril. Why are we discussing this? Because Roy Dupuis is one of those interviewees.

Actually, Roy and Tristan’s 9-year-old daughter Chloé are quite cute.
