Chloe is the most famous young medium in France. She decides private matters for the world’s leaders , chooses the CEOs of big companies as well as the next trends in fashion. Having a sound reputation in the industry, Chloe is however just a “channel”: an extremely advanced spirit has chosen her ever since her childhood to convey his ideas through her. This spirit is no one else but… Albert Einstein.
However, the young woman gives too many consultations, she is overbooked and is in the midst of a sentimental and moral crisis. She has polluted her channel and cannot « receive » any more information. Albert Einstein has suddenly decided to…move out.
In an airport snack, he « enters » a waiter’s body, Zac, a stubborn and depressed beekeeper who, with no real future opportunities, takes odd jobs to make ends meet and save his bees.
All of a sudden, this common man starts to know everything about everybody, hears their thoughts and sees the future…
Chloe must now face an unmanageable nightmare as her prestigious clients still rely on her. She has to try everything she can to win Albert back…
It’s with Where's Albert ? a profound, human, bold, delirious comedy that Didier van Cauwelaert will make his comeback as a director.
Billy Wilder remarked « The Purpose of Comedy is to use laughter and humour to change our view of the world ».
This comedy is not only a source of amusement, suspense and twisted situations. It provides an incisive overview of our society where fortune telling leads to the most absurd behavior…while also highlighting the importance of how love and fighting for the same cause could bring two people fundamentally opposed together.
