AroView: A modest, warm-hearted French comedy from writer-director Caroline Vignal, starring Laure Calamy as a school teacher on a journey of self-discovery in unexpected circumstances. This will hit the spot for anyone hankering for some traditional Gallic charm.
When her secret lover (and the father of one of her pupils) bails on their summer holiday plans because his wife organised a surprise trekking holiday in the Cévennes National Park, she decides to follow their track, alone except for a gorgeous donkey. The picturesue Cévennes was made famous by Robert Louis Stevenson whose book ‘Travels with a Donkey in the Cevennes’ is based on his own experience of the journey, which traditionally requires a donkey.
“As a tale of a woman finding herself - and finding out how to truly survive and thrive in her own skin - Antoinette in the Cévennes is both thoughtful and charming.” ~Sarah Ward, CONCRETE PLAYGROUND
