Ever wondered what the world of Mad Men would look like without all the mid-life crises and biting social commentary?
Look no further than Régis Roinsard’s self-assured French fancy, which centres on an aspiring secretary (Déborah François) whose prospective employer (Romain Duris) is determined for her to win a speed-typing competition.
She’s a peppy idealist, he’s an emotionally distant cad, and their My Fair Lady dynamic goes exactly the way you suspect it will.
It’s paper-thin and candyfloss-light, but stops just short of diabetic coma thanks to crackling screwball dialogue and bold, deft visuals.
