... a realistic portrait of rural life.
| Original Score: 3/4
It's a small, simple movie, but, by the end, you feel like you've met two people you'd enjoy hanging with.
| Original Score: 3/4
Serrault's got all the appropriate nuances of this old codger down pat. I'm beginning to get the impression that it's who he is.
| Original Score: 3/5
excluded me at a basic level from its opening scenes on; when it was over, I felt as though I'd never made it in
| Original Score: 2.5/5
Carion has concocted a simple story for complex times, one that realistically examines the passing of the torch from a traditionalist to a neophyte
[Carion] has honestly involving characters, and does not shirk the necessarily rude side of agri-life.
Pokey and maybe a bit too sincere, but it has its own integrity.
It is a nice character study of two people locked into themselves in different ways, and the slow path they each take to recognize their interdependence.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
May linger in the mind as a postcard collection of alluring mountain scenery, but there's not much in the way of lingering alpenglow at movie's end.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
A dance to a post-war ditty shared by old man who misses the daughter he never knew--and a young woman who identifies him as the father of her imagined past.
Slow-moving but utterly delightful.
Seigner and Serrault give sweet, satisfying performances.
What director and cowriter Christian Carion has done with the film is give us a genuine feel for the simple joys, disappointments and mind-numbing routine of rural life.
The drama here is hardly earthshaking, but the movie has a quiet power, and the vivid emotions linger in the memory.
Thoughtful screenplay...interpreted in subtle and expert performances
Serrault is so good, so believable, that it never feels as if he's giving a performance -- even a good one.
Wise, understated, warm and witty, it presents stars Michel Serrault and Mathilde Seigner in roles that fit them so perfectly they could have been tailor-made.
| Original Score: 4/5
The Girl From Paris is as briskly unsentimental as it is humane about people and nature.
It's the stuff of formula ... [b]ut director Christian Carion, who co-wrote the film with Eric Assous, manages to keep you interested by gradually shifting the nature of the relationship between the old man and his protege.
A lovely, keenly observed film.
