Pret a tout

Here's a film that hasn't yet been profiled in which Senegalese born beauty Aissa Maiga (Bamako) stars in as a girl next door of sorts...

The French romantic-comedy Pret a tout, directed by Nicholas Cuche, was released across theaters in France 2 days ago. 

tout stars Maiga in the role of Alice, a spirited idealist and the object of affection of her college-era squeeze named Max (played by Max Boublil), who has made a fortune off his internet business. Although there aren't any English language marketing materials for the film so far, according to its French synopsis (which has been translated to English)..

Max, at the age of 30, has made a fortune on the internet business that he started with his two friends, and he is currently enjoying life under the sun. However, Max has grown tired of his lifestyle, and he can't stop thinking about his college love Alice, a bubbly, passionate girl full of ideals, who was never interested in material luxuries.

In order to get close to Alice once again, Max buys the bankrupt factory in which Alice works and pretends to be an ordinary line worker. He doesn't reveal the truth about his wealth, and, risking it all, Max spends lavishly for Alice's happiness, and forgoes his life as a millionaire - keeping his real status a secret - for fear of disappointing her.

Pret a tout, produced by Eric Jehelmann, is currently distributed by StudioCanal and a Jerico production. 

Now if only Maiga could star next alongside Burkina Fasso born Issaka Sawadogo (Diego Star) in a romantic comedy, life would be grand

A trailer with English subtitles has yet to surface, but watch the French trailer below, if only to watch the lovely Mrs. Maiga in action and looking fabulous.
