Synopsis:
'Le Chignon d'Olga' is the charming first film by talented 23 year-old writer-director Jerome Bonnell. A tender romantic comedy-drama set in a provincial French town, it tells the story of brother and sister Julien and Emma, who are grieving after the recent loss of their mother. As the summer draws to a close, Julien aimlessly wanders the streets until one day he encounters Olga, a beautiful young woman who works in a bookshop. Secretly, without confiding even in his close childhood friend Alice, he tries everything he can to get closer to the object of his affection.

Intelligent and subtle - Olga's Chignon review by Tim from London

Intelligent and subtle film about the impact of bereavement on a family. The family relationships are often intense and disfunctional. Expect to work hard with this film - the background and characters are not spelt out but are portrayed in short glances and throwaway remarks. Some of the (mostly female) characters were under developed and lacked sufficient depth but if like French cinema ala Eric Rohmer you will like this.
