After his father takes ill, a young man in Paris (Nicolas Cazale) is called back home and forced to resume helping out with the family grocery. Most of his job involves prowling the hilly countryside in a van and tangling with his father's oddball customers, a task relieved somewhat by the company of his charming friend from the city (Clotilde Hesme), whom he secretly adores. Unforced and beautifully acted, this 2007 drama by Eric Guirado develops into a family portrait impressive in its ellipses; the father (Daniel Duval) isn't on-screen much, but his harsh and judgmental temperament is clear from the hero's simmering anger and the guarded silence of his more responsible older brother (Stephan Guerin-Tillie). In French with subtitles. 96 min.
