I too have experienced a similar annoyance with my Espace (2002). It appears that the boot hatch has trouble "de-latching" after a lot of Rain - like most of this summer!

After taking it to get it looked at and it working OK at the garage, I have found that by holding the latch in by approx 1/4 of its full movement, then unlocking the car with the fob, something inside just catches and you can release the lid.

Its a good job the rear window still opens or we'd be stuck!
