FOR CRYING OUT LOUD: Populaire

03/06/2013 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Screening for carers and their babies
 on Mon 3 Jun at 11.00am.
Baby changing, bottle warming and buggy parking facilities are available. Tickets cost £4.50/£3.50 concessions per adult. Screenings limited to babies under 12 months accompanied by no more than two adults.

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.
