French... Don't let that put you off!
28 January 2020 | by PaulReevo3000See all my reviews

I'll admit, when I see a French film, I picture dark, tough to watch, slow, art house style films. I expected the same but gave it a chance.

I'm so glad I did. British and American film could learn a lot from this gem. How to go back to basics and just make an honest, heartwarming and down to earth film anyone can enjoy. Brilliant!
