An inscrutable marvel of French cinema's comic genre
Watching this film you would surely be thanking your stars that such films are still made in France. I am saying this as not many people in this world would venture out watching films like this leave alone filmmakers directing it and producers putting their money. "Gentille" is one of those charming "face in the crowd" film which has "living next door" look. Much of the film's happiness comes in the form of its leading lady Mlle Emmanuelle Devos. As she is in love, she decides to experience a series of lighter moments which would maker her life worthwhile. The gallic capital Paris is also nicely depicted in this film especially some scenes near an infamous pipeline called Centre Pompidou.Do not despair if you are not able to ascertain whether this film makes any sense or not. At first viewing it might not be easy for a casual viewer to figure out what Sophie Filliere is talking about. It is only with repeated viewings that some sense could be made out.
