Storyline

Yvon Rance, a born hairdresser and an elegant middle-aged man with a perfect toupee, reigns in his native Brittany over a clientèle of little old ladies. But his main reason for living, his masterpiece, is Laetitia, his only daughter, whom he has single-handedly brought up for eighteen years and whom he fondly pictures as heading a cutting-edge hairdressing salon. But she has secretly auditioned for the movies and has been cast in the leading role... her life is about to change! For her father, this is a real catastrophe. Written by L.H. Wong <lhw@sfs.org.sg>

Minor Jugnot vehicle.
1 January 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This one is disappointing for those familiar with Jugnot's best work, which was still to come when he turned out this slight, agreeable piece.

Hair dresser Gerard is part of a quirky village society, when his school age daughter Berenice gets a movie part. Expectations of a pleasant jokey little comedy are dashed as the complications move into weepy and then back again.

There are some agreeable surprises - the glimpse of Bejo's performance, the charming wife character introducing unexpected developments.

Minimal film form but it is a chance to see Bejo emerging.

Curious the way that the plot of David GOLDER keeps on coming back in French film - as HOMME AU CHAPEAU ROND or this film.
