'Populaire' tasty French treat

‘Populaire'

★★★

R

South Side Works

Thursday, Oct. 3, 2013, 6:32 p.m.
 

A French bonbon of little consequence but lots of style, this mid-century modern lark about a secretary, her typewriter and her demanding boss occupies some fantasy realm where colors are more vivid than in real life, the clothes snazzier, the characters more carefree.

It stars the impossibly cute Déborah François as the typing tornado and the impossibly debonair Romain Duris as the man who trains her for the ultimate speed-typing championship. Written by Romain Compingt, Daniel Presley and Regis Roinsard. Directed by Roinsard. In French with English subtitles.
