Under the Rainbow
About the Film
About the Director
Laura meets her prince charming in aspiring composer Sandro… at least until her aunt Marianne's neighbor Maxime puts an end to her childish fantasies about love. In turn, Marianne, a divorced single mother/actress, finds companionship in her driving lessons with Pierre, Sandro's father, who is secretly planning his life around a fortuneteller’s prophecy about his date of death. Set in Paris, the world’s most romantic city, and full of characters reminiscent of those in fairy tales, UNDER THE RAINBOW is, refreshingly enough, about everyday life and how it fails to meet (and yet somehow exceeds) our expectations.
