Oh La La! (original title: Nouvelle chance) is a 2006 French comedy-drama film directed by Anne Fontaine. It was screened out of competition at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival.


Augustin, clown lunaire, occupe, comme emploi alimentaire, une place de garçon de piscine au Ritz. Mais sa vraie vocation est d'interpréter des spectacles inspirés du théâtre nô japonais qu'il présente dans des comités d'entreprises ou des maisons de retraite. À l'occasion d'une de ses représentations il fait la connaissance d'Odette Saint-Gilles, venue le féliciter. Cette ancienne chanteuse d'opérette, totalement oubliée, s'ennuie terriblement. De ce moment, Augustin se met en tête de monter une pièce inspirée de la correspondance de Madame du Deffand et Julie de Lespinasse. Odette, amusée, accepte. Il ne reste plus qu'à trouver sa partenaire. Ce sera Bettina Fleisher, héroïne d'un feuilleton télévisé.

Evelyn Couch (Bates), a timid, unhappy housewife in her forties, meets elderly Virginia Threadgoode, known as Ninny (Tandy) in an Anderson, Alabama nursing home. Ninny, over several encounters with Evelyn, tells her the story of the now-abandoned town of Whistle Stop, and the people who lived there. The film's subplot concerns Evelyn's dissatisfaction with her marriage and her life, her growing confidence, and her developing friendship with Ninny. The narrative switches several times between Ninny's story, which is set between World War I and World War II, and Evelyn's life in 1980s Birmingham.

Agathe is a successful art dealer who lives with her husband François and their son Adrien in a wealthy quarter of Paris. Unfortunately Adrien is an underachiever at his school and Agathe cannot bother François into leaving the flat for parent-teacher conferences. Moreover the family has an abandoned construction site in their flat. The situation gets stirred up when Adrien befriends a classmate who has a rather dubious social background. His friend is raised by a single father named Patrick who has neither a proper home nor tact. Although Agathe is obviously distressed by Patrick's unpolished behaviour, her husband François just hires him to take care of the overdue repairs. François and Patrick even become friends. Then François hits successfully on a woman Patrick had wanted for himself and leaves Agathe. Patrick and Agathe are both left back. Agathe develops empathy for this man who au contraire to her husband is dedicated to do everything necessary to make sure his son can attend a respected school.

Martin (Fabrice Luchini), an ex-Parisian with a deep appreciation for Gustave Flaubert, has settled in a village in Normandy as a baker. He sees a British couple moving into an old property across the road. Their names, Gemma (Gemma Arterton) and Charles Bovery (Jason Flemyng), echo those of the leading characters in Flaubert's 1856 masterpiece Madame Bovary. Martin engages with the young couple and observes Gemma's behaviour replicates that of her namesake, including a series of romantic and sexual liaisons that suggest she is headed for a tragic finale like that of the novel. He intervenes but cannot alter the inevitable conclusion.
