Directed by Charles Garrad
Starring Colin Morgan, Fanny Ardant, Audrey Bastien, Adelkrim Bahloul
When Paul’s (Colin Morgan) father utters some deathbed clues to a past his son knew nothing about, it triggers a journey of discovery that leads him to a house situated amongst the foothills of the French countryside. Here lives Madeleine (Fanny Ardant), a secretive musician, who might be the key to unlocking the dark secrets of his childhood.
There’s a lot to like about Charles Garrad’s European postcard of a movie. It’s one of those jaunty little flicks that’d sit perfectly on a bleak Sunday afternoon’s viewing schedule. That’s not to do it a disservice, because Waiting for You strikes the perfect balance between untaxing entertainment, with just the right amount of mystery bubbling under to keep you intrigued amongst the holiday romance and junior detective work.
