Gorgeous mix of comedy and drama
9 May 2018 | by wfairfanSee all my reviews

Set in a beautiful area of France, and includes original, charming and dome offbeat characters. Its elegance and poetry are accomplished by relatable characters and thoughtful direction and cinematography. Great humor, tenderness, irony and drama with much to say about thecworking class, the arts, great literature, sex, and basically.. life. Well done.
