Dir. Axelle Ropert (2009).
This first feature (directed by the screenwriter of La France) is a melancholy, gently eccentric comedy set to a choice ‘60s soul soundtrack in a rural French town. The bustling protagonist is the local mayor—too enthusiastically engrossed with the public good to prevent the disintegration of his family or his personality.
