A fresh and colourful romantic comedy about typing? Surely some mistake? Au contraire.

There's a generosity and kindness underlying the smooth surface and a sense of sadness, of loss, about a past that can be recaptured as style but never recovered as reality.

Blessed with stunning sets, colourful costumes and a fine piano score, Populaire is a bright and breezy film that older audiences in particularly will appreciate.

It's a sweet little film - a trifle with extra custard - and whenever Rose beams in triumph, you can't help but beam right back.

Ridiculously charming as it spins a deliciously retro kitsch magic.

It's impossible not to be charmed by this cheeky French comedy, even if it's utterly predictable and never remotely breaks its gorgeously designed surfaces.

It's a speed comedy: snappy, inoffensive, mechanical, but mostly hitting the right keys.

Not since The Artist has there been a French film as delightful or commercial as Populaire. If you're looking for a happy, feelgood romantic comedy, here it is.

You'll need to have a very sweet tooth for this, and it makes light of those difficult sexual politics that Mad Men attacked with such fierce satire.

Almost never hits a false key. A delight.

Stylishly directed and laugh-out-loud funny, this is a hugely enjoyable French romcom (or Fromcom) with a witty, intelligent script and a pair of terrific comic performances from Deborah Francois and Romain Duris.

It's très chic and charming but a bit disappointing when you see where it's headed.

The colourful retro designs and the leads' sparkling chemistry help to Tipp-Ex over some of the predictability.

Somewhat disappointingly, the social and sexual commentary is sidelined by the film's typing competition-focused action - admittedly handled with real aplomb - and is otherwise buried beneath the inarguably beautiful period dressing.
