This candy-colored French homage to the playful romantic comedies of the 1950s stars Deborah Francois as Rose, a small-town girl from Normandy in 1958 who interviews with dashing insurance agent Louis (Romain Duris). As a secretary, she's a disaster, but as a typist she is a veritable savant... even with two fingers. With his inner sportsman awakened, the fiercely competitive Louis directs her to enter a speed-typing contest and coaches her relentlessly toward becoming the fastest typist in France- perhaps even the world! Also starring Berenice Bejo (The Artist), Populaire evokes a period that became a turning point in the working lives of women around the world with sly humor, colorful retro designs and spirited music. In French with English subtitles. Rated R for a scene of sexuality. Writers: Regis Roinsard, Daniel Presley, Romain Compingt. Director: Regis Roinsard. (France 2012) 111 min.
