POPULAIRE is an effervescent homage to the playful romantic comedies of the 1950s, with sly humor, vibrant color, and spirited musics evoking a turning point in the lives of working women around the world. Engaged to the son of a local mechanic, 21 year old Rose seems destined for the quiet life of a housewife. But when she leaves her quaint village to interview for a secretarial position, her extraordinary typing skill catches the eye of a competitive businessman interested in speed typing competitions. The film features delightful turns from Romain Duris (THE BEAT THAT MY HEART SKIPPED) and Berenice Bejo (THE ARTIST).
