(English equivalent of this famous French proverb ): "great oaks from little acorns grow"

Pascal Rabaté takes a taboo subject (seventy -something's sexuality) and gives it a cheerful treatment;although the screenplay looses steam in the last third ,with hackneyed clichés such as the neo- hippie community and the girl-doing-soul-searching and a pointless trick as the providential car crash,it is pleasant to watch.

The choice of the actors is amazing:pitting a comedy actor such as Daniel Prevost against the most cerebral French actress might have been downright embarrassing,particularly for someone like me who is not exactly a Bulle Ogier fan . But it works :the scenes between Prevost and Ogier,against all odds ,ring true ,particularly the Thé Dansant.

There are good moments ,mostly in the first part:

-the two pals,fishing in the river;then ,after Edmond's death,Emile by the river ,with two fishing rods ,but alone..

-the afternoon with the son and the daughter-in-law ,in which all the lines hit home .

-After the car crash ,the relationship with the retired schoolteacher is a little botched ,but saved by Hélène Vincent (whose performances in "La Vie Est Un Long Fleuve Tranquille " and "Quelques Heures De Printemps" remain memorable).

A lot of nudity ;only those in Emile's mind are a bit embarrassing.

Like this ? Try these ....
