The Girl From Paris

This French sleeper hit sounds like the kind of film you've seen a hundred times before: Two opposite people meet, form a bond and end up completing one another. Rather than a typical sentimental romance, however, this one is a mellow character study. A young city gal (Mathilde Seigner) realizes her dream by buying a rural farm from a tough old country gentleman (Michel Serrault). As part of the agreement, he will stay on for a few months to show her the ropes. Eventually, of course, the two rub off on each other. The film has few romantic notions about country life and shows off the hardships of modern farming vividly and quite realistically. In French with English subtitles. 103 minutes
