Film: Populaire

Populaire is an effervescent French homage to the playful romantic comedies of the 1950s, with the sly humor, vibrant color and spirited music of the era, evoking a period that became a turning point in the working lives of women around the world. Shy and awkward, 21-year-old Rose Pamphyle (Déborah François) dreams of being a secretary, but in Normandy in 1958, life beyond the confines of wife and mother seems impossible. Determined to succeed on her own terms, Rose leaves her quaint village for the nearby town of Lisieux, where her nimble two-fingered typing prompts local insurance agent Louis Échard (Romain Duris, Heartbreaker, The Beat That My Heart Skipped) to hire her as his assistant. Disorganized, clumsy and absent-minded, Rose proves to be a disaster as secretary, but a savant as a typist, even just pecking away with two fingers. The fiercely competitive Louis insists that she enter in a speed-typing contest if she wants to keep her job. Installing himself as her coach, he relentlessly drives her toward becoming the fastest typist in France—perhaps even the world! But as the small-town girl becomes a world-class contender under Louis' tutelage, Rose realizes what she really wants and goes for it with the same verve and energy she brings to the keyboard. Also starring Bérénice Béjo (The Artist).

    I thought the film was a fun riff on the pygmalion story-- rich cultured insurance agent makes a bet with his best friend that he can turn his incompetent, provincial new secretary into a world champion speed typist. it was a good movie for listening to French. The dialogue was easy to understand and not heavy on slang. I enjoyed meeting everyone for conversation afterwards, and look forward to the next time!
