    Spring, 1958. 21-year-old Rose Pamphyle is living in a sleepy French village with her widower father. Engaged to the son of the local mechanic, it seems her destiny is to spend the rest of her days as a bored rural housewife.

    But Rose wants more from life. Travelling to Normandy, she meets Louis Echard, the dashing boss of an insurance agency who’s hiring a secretary. The interview is a disaster, but Rose reveals a special gift, she can type at an extraordinary speed!

    This movie is surprisingly entertaining. I'm not a romcom person but thoroughly enjoyed it and intend to purchase the blu-ray.
