Our May main film will be Populaire...
It's 1958 and 21-year-old Rose lives with her grouchy widower father and is engaged to the son of the local mechanic. She seems destined for a quiet, drudgery-filled life but that's not the life she longs for. When she travels to Normandy to work as a secretary, Rose reveals a special gift - she can type at extraordinary speed.
Note: French with English subtitles
Unwittingly, the young woman awakens the dormant sports fan in Louis. If she wants the job she'll have to compete in a speed typing competition. Whatever sacrifices Rose must make to reach the top, Louis declares himself her trainer. He'll turn her into the fastest girl not only in the country, but in the world! But a love of sport doesn't always mix well with love itself. -- (C) Weinstein
