As US romantic comedies plum the depths of vulgarity and crudeness, I find myself turning more to the more sophisticated Romances, that French cinema efortlessly turns out, like this one..
Young student Constance takes a room in the gome of an elderly widower after failing her college exams. Over a year they become firm friends and the relaitonship between the aging Henri and his son and the daughter in law he has never quite taken to, mirrors that of Constance and her Father who is set against her realising her dream of going to music school .
Lovely movie with great music and fine performances.
