Charming little French farce from director Eric Rohmer, whose films can always be counted on to be breezy, light and so natural in feel and movement. In this poignant little piece, a woman living in the country is best friends with her Tunisian farmer neighbour and decides to end her friend’s loneliness by setting her up with a man she meets in a personal ad. The woman’s children also have their own storylines with their own romantic mixups as well, and like any good French film it all works itself out at a big party in a large country chateau. Nothing exhilarating, but an enjoyably frothy night at the movies all the same.
