Genre: Romantic Comedy
Director: Régis Roinsard
Starring: Romain Duris, Déborah François, Bérénice Bejo, Shaun Benson, Mélanie BernierThe Story: A young woman in 1958 France is a lousy secretary but a whiz at typing, which causes her employer to train her as a champion in typing competitions. The Lowdown: An unusual subject, gorgeous period detail and a terrific cast raise this romantic comedy (with subtitles, yes) to the level of something very pleasant and entertaining.
Genre: Adventure Romance
Director: Jean-Paul Rappeneau (Bon Voyage)
Starring: Juliette Binoche, Olivier Martinez, Pierre Arditi, François CluzetIn Brief: The Horseman on the Roof may have been made in 1995, but it feels like a film from a much earlier era — even with its outbursts of nudity and grisly images of a cholera plague. It's utterly romantic, but in an almost absurdly chaste manner. In fact its stars, Juliette Binoche and Olivier Martinez, have nothing that could be called a love scene. That may be a plus or a minus, depending on how you feel about these things. In essence, it's an adventure yarn about two people trying to travel through cholera-ridden France — she to get to her elderly husband, he to take funds home to Italy for a revolution against the Austrian occupation. Great? By no means, but it's good-looking and entertaining.
