Gold Coast Cinema Series presents another delightful French film, following the success of Haute Couture!
Antoinette, a schoolteacher, is looking forward to her long planned summer holiday with her married lover Vladimir, the father of one of her pupils. When she learns that Vladimir has to cancel because his wife organized a surprise hiking vacation, Antoinette decides to follow their tracks, accompanied by a protective donkey named Patrick.
“The script is sharp and the cinematography (Simon Beaufils) is beautiful. This is a comedy-drama and there are lots of laughs…” – Stephen Romei, The Australian
“Calamy’s performance has rightly been awarded for its superb shading, but let’s not forget the donkey, brilliant as her straight man. Who says nobody likes a smart ass?” – Paul Byrnes, Sydney Morning Herald
“Calamy really grounds the movie with her funny, generous performance.” – Leslie Felperin, Guardian
