With an eye-popping visual style and dazzling costumes, Populaire is a chic and sumptuous romantic comedy, sparkling with vintage Hollywood charm. Set in 1950s France, this is the extraordinary tale of Rose (Francois), a village shopkeeper’s daughter who travels to Normandy to try out for a job as a secretary for local lawyer, and bachelor, Louis (Duris). Lacking the grace necessary to perform the role, Rose’s interview is a disaster but reveals a special gift – she is a speed demon on the typewriter! Louis’ competitive spirit is reawakened and he hires Rose and begins an intensive training regime to prepare her to compete in the country’s cut-throat and high profile typing contests.
