Storyline

When farmer Aymé Pigrenet loses his wife, he is not exactly overwhelmed by sorrow, rather by the sheer amount of work that suddenly falls on his shoulders. Soon, he realizes he won't make it alone and he needs another companion to cope with it. But finding a new spouse is no simple task in his small rural town: Aymé turns to a matchmaker who quickly understands that he's not after a soul mate and advises him to go to Romania where young women will do anything to escape poverty. And indeed, it's in Romania that Aymé meets Elena... Written by JR Bouvier

Drama? I think not.
4 April 2006 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I can't rate this film because I saw only about the first half of it on a flight back from Paris. What I saw I loved.

Comedy doesn't travel well. I'm an American, dyed in the wool, and I normally find French comedy annoying--self-conscious and stilted. This movie, however, is funny, and I give most of the credit to Michel Blanc. He is subtly hilarious as the single-minded rube trying to replace his dead wife-cum-farmhand-cum-cook-cum-housekeeper the way you or I might try to replace a pair of comfortable old shoes with new ones. He just can't make the clerk understand.

I like hard comedy--vicious satire, outrageous parody, clever wordplay--and this movie is none of those. It could hardly be more conventional. The plot is that of a TV sitcom episode, and the script is studied and tame. Still, I laughed out loud every few minutes, and taking into account jet lag and nicotine deprivation, that's saying something.
