Happily Ever After, known in French as Ils se marièrent et eurent beaucoup d'enfants (Translation: They married and had many children), is a 2004 French film. The film is written and directed by Yvan Attal, produced by Claude Berri, and starring Charlotte Gainsbourg and Yvan Attal. It was released in English in North America. For English-speaking audiences, the film is highly recognizable for the lengthy cameo appearance of Johnny Depp, who speaks fluent French. The soundtrack also heavily features Radiohead. Happily Ever After dissects the viability of fidelity via the story of three buddies and their tumultuous relationships with the opposite sex. The film opens with the central characters, Vincent (Yvan Attal) and Gabrielle (Charlotte Gainsbourg) capriciously flirting in a bar. Vincent appears to win the affection of Gabrielle over many other potential courters, but the entire exercise is a ruse; they are actually married with a child. The rest of the film explores the nature of romance, marriage, happiness, expectations in life, how love and sex interrelate, and ultimately, why no one can feel fulfilled.
