A contemplative tale
22 April 2019 | by FrenchEddieFelsonSee all my reviews

A beautiful film, literally and figuratively, which begins and ends with an ultra-bokeh image. This bucolic tale is based on the chance encounter between Pierre, a man suffering from Asperger syndrome, and Louise, a widow, mother of two. The scenario might seem far-fetched and/or barely credible, but this observation is secondary: Louise is struggling to save her business of organic products, and any help would be welcome. Would Pierre be this providential help? During the film, the audience strolls with the main protagonists in an immense orchard lined with poppies and surrounded by fields of lavender or sunflowers. Thus, we see them taming to each other, as the fox and the little prince (Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, 1943). This film constantly rhymes with benevolence and sweetness. It's undoubtedly refreshing!
