Up for Love (original title: Un homme à la hauteur) is a 2016 Franco-Belgian romantic comedy film directed by Laurent Tirard and starring Jean Dujardin and Virginie Efira. The film is a remake of the 2013 Argentine film Corazón de León.[2][3][4]


Diane is a lawyer who went through a divorce a few years ago. After losing her phone, she receives a call from Alexandre, a funny and charming man who found the phone and intends to return it. As the conversation goes on, the two hit it off and decide to arrange a date. Diane heads for the meeting with great expectations only to realise Alexandre is a man of diminutive stature.
