Ciné : Populaire


Set in a vividly-coloured 1958, Régis Roinsard’s debut feature follows Rose Pamphyle (the delightful Déborah François, in a role far removed from her debut in the Dardenne brothers’ L’enfant), a 21-year-old who seems destined for the humdrum life of a housewife until she signs up to be a secretary for charismatic insurance agency boss Louis Echard (Romain Duris). Although she’s disastrously ineffective around the office, she happens to be able to type at a devilish speed – a skill that inspires Echard to coach her for a speed-typing competition. This charming romantic comedy between mentor and protégé is a throwback to the sights, sounds and rhythms of the cinema of Tashlin, Wilder and Losey, with Mad Men production design and an impeccably chosen soundtrack.
