  • A middle-aged bohemian belatedly discovers the joys of capitalism in this comedy from French writer and director Marc Fitoussi. Babou (Isabelle Huppert) spent most of her twenties and thirties living a footloose lifestyle, wandering from place to place and never holding a job longer than she had to. But while this way of living agreed with Babou, her daughter Esmeralda (Lolita Chammah) never much cared for it, and now that she's in her twenties and engaged to wed Justin (Joachim Lombard), a successful salesman, she'd prefer it if Babou could finally settle down and start looking after herself. Determined to do right by her daughter, Babou lands a position selling time-shares at a condominium complex in the coastal town of Ostend. Babou doesn't know the first thing about selling real estate, but she proves to be a quick study, soon landing customers on a par with rival saleswoman Irene (Chantal Banlier) and earning the respect of manager Lydie (Aure Atika). Babou also reveals she hasn't abandoned her enthusiasm for free love when she falls into a passionate but no-strings affair with Bart (Jurgen Delnaet), who works at the local shipyard. COPACABANA was an official selection at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival.
