Movie Info

Agathe Villanova is a self-centered, workaholic feminist politician who, upon reluctantly returning to her home in the south of France to sort out her mother's affairs, runs for a local election. Upon her arrival, Agathe grudgingly agrees to take part in a documentary being made by the blundering duo of Karim, an aspiring filmmaker, and self-professed "reporter" Michel, on the subject of "successful women." As Agathe's life hilariously unravels, the camera is there to capture it all.

Audience Reviews for Let it Rain (Parlez-moi de la pluie)

  • Feb 28, 2013
    A gentle tone, likeable characters, rural locations and unassuming narrative belies explorations on feminism, racism, misogyny and fidelity to name a few. Funny largely without being "laugh-out-loud" funny, and dramatic without being melodramatic, the film is satisfying and quietly moving and shows the universal truth that although most people want to change, few do, and when they do, it's in small gestures and kindnesses.
