Director: Daniel Auteuil
Actors: Daniel Auteuil, Astrid Berges-Frisbey, Nicolas Duvauchelle, Kad Merad, Sabine Azema, Jean-Pierre Darroussin, and Marie-Anne Chazel
Year: 2011
Genre: Drama and Romance
Conclusion: 3/5
Based on a novel by Marcel Pagnol. This is a lovely film although I could say that this is on the very old fashioned side of things. Actor Daniel Auteuil is most famous for portraying his role in the brilliant Hidden (Cache) 2005. Amazingly he directs and also acts in this film. He brings to the screen a solid performance and also he has got the gift of bringing the story to life. It is a very well made film and thoroughly acted out throughout by all the supporting actors.
