    Director: Régis Roinsard
    Original Title: Populaire
    Language: French, English, German

    Grossing more than $20M, this is a wonderfully stylish French romantic comedy set in the late ’50s. A useless secretary (Déborah François) is given the chance to hold on to her job by her handsome boss (Romain Duris) if she follows a strict regime of learning to speed type; in fact he wants her to become the fastest typist in the world. Of course, romance blossoms as she sets about her task with the inevitable series of setbacks and challenges. Director Régis Roinsard evidently knows his film history and produced a beautiful picture full of fun, charm and charisma. Movie buffs or those just looking for a night of escapism will be equally rewarded with this gem.
