Down on his luck, and up to his neck in debt, Andr+â-¬ (Am+â-¬lie's Jamel Debbouze) decides it's easier to end it all than repay his loan-sharks. As he is about to launch himself from the Pont Neuf, he notices a fellow suicideGÇöa gorgeous, statuesque blonde. Leaping into the Seine, Andr+â-¬ inadvertently gets himself a champion intent on cleaning up his life, in return for saving hers.
