French drama set in the 1950s following a young woman who yearns for more than the humdrum existence she seems destined for. As a 21-year-old, Rose Pamphyle (Déborah François) is kept firmly in check by her father. He has arranged her engagement to a local mechanic and the girl seems destined to pass from the control of one man to another on her wedding day. However, when Rose travels to Lisieux in Normandy another opportunity presents itself. Though her interview for a secretarial job goes disastrously, she makes the acquaintance of a charismatic manager called Louis Echard (Romain Duris). Impressed by her natural abilities at the keyboard, Louis appoints himself her trainer for a speed typing competition. Can Rose type her way to the life she desires?

The first thing I did when I got access to wifi at the airport was google the dvd release date which is saying something! I might have to book another long haul flight just so I can watch this again between now and it's release!!
It has all the advantages of nostalgia for the fifties combined with a knowing modern take that brings back
all the elements of humour, glamour and romance that used to be in abundance in
the cinema of the fifties. If that is generally missing in films of today.......No worries!
For here is a film that will, I hope, restore a jaded mindset to produce
a feel good factor that lasts beyond the one hour fifty five minutes in the cinema or
I have to say I loved every minute of it.
And repeatability? It has that too.
What is it about the French language that is so appealing?
It's a little predictable; you can guess the outcome long before the end of the film but the beautiful styling, quirky French humour & the wonderful characters mean you overlook this. I was whisked away to a 1959 France & longed to jumped into the TV screen to join in.
Like most French movies, it takes you through a series of emotions without you even realising it - one minute you can be laughing out loud and the next, your eyes are watering.
I thought the subject matter was really entertaining. I wondered how they would pull off a film about a typing competition - not very exciting in this day and age when we're surround by adrenalin rush movies - but it worked and I found myself sat on the edge of my seat just willing her to type like the wind!
Yes, it was a little predictable - most romantic comedies such as these are - but that's why we watch them - we know we'll be satisfied at the end, when the boy gets the girl and vice versa.
An all round simple, heart-warming story about love and type writers - what more could you want. Well worth a watch!

It's an enjoyable film but be aware that the "5 featurettes" advertised on the back of the Blu-ray DVD are all rather short. Read morePublished 1 month ago by drew_m
