Never have I laughed and cried simultaneously, until I watched this film
23 November 2020 | by j_norris-95061See all my reviews

This film is one of the most beautiful, understated, charming and sensitive films I have had the pleasure to watch. Few words spoken, but with some French subtitles. It's a very subtle but the actors are brilliant.

I smiled, chuckled and even allowed a tear to roll. But my emotions seemed to be in tandem with those of the characters.

Should you dare watch it, you will be gently taken on a charming journey through the beautiful French countryside and meet a series of interesting characters with great actors like Stephen Dillane and Ciaran Hinds to lead you by your hand.

Watching Ciaran Hinds', with his delightful expressions and mannerisms throughout, was 'story telling' taken to another level. I really hope that he pursues similar style films and perhaps, allows us to hear his voice too, next time.
