Rated R · 111 minutes
Although the color-soaked visuals of this retro romantic comedy (2012) evoke films ranging from The Umbrellas of Cherbourg to Gentlemen Prefer Blondes to Vertigo, the story mostly cribs from Shaw's Pygmalion. Romain Duris (The Beat That My Heart Skipped) plays an urbane insurance agent, circa 1958, who hires a French village girl as his secretary and transforms her into a sophisticated beauty by prepping her for an international typing competition. Deborah Francois (L'Enfant, The Page Turner) channels both Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly, allowing the viewer a rooting interest in what happens to the heroine of this sweet but slight homage to the 50s and 60s. With Berenice Bejo, Shaun Benson, and Miou-Miou. In English and subtitled French.
