About The Love Punch
A gentle comedy caper through the Cote d'Azur. Richard (Pierce Brosnan) and Kate (Emma Thompson) have enjoyed a spiky, combative quasi-friendship ever since their marriage ended acrimoniously (Richard unimaginatively left Emma for a younger woman). Always financially comfortable, Richard gets a shock when he sells his company and the new owners clear out its funds. When Kate finds out their retirement money is gone, the bickering pair decide to travel to Paris and confront the shady French businessman (Laurent Lafitte) who is responsible. However, when they realise that he has bought a large diamond for his trophy fiancée (Louise Bourgoin) with the money, they conspire to steal it with the help of their friends Penelope (Celia Imrie) and Jerry (Timothy Spall).
