If you are looking to spend a good time, I highly recommend Service Entrance which is playing next week at the Walter Read Theater at the Rendez-vous with French Cinema. This movie is a sparkling comedy resolutely optimistic.
In the 60s, Jean Louis Joubert (Fabrice Luchini), a stockbroker and strict father "stuck" leads a bleak existence in his Paris apartment and bored with his wife Suzanne, a province, "staged in Paris."
His wife decides to replace their old much retired by a young Spanish. He then discovered that the top floor of his building, several other great Spanish live in tiny rooms and uncomfortable. A new world opens to him. He smiles again, takes life with happiness. And that worries his wife.
Unlike the rigid codes of the bourgeoisie of the 60s, we take pleasure in watching the liveliness and joie de vivre of these women who know just a little. Fabrice Luchini excels in the role of the bourgeois stiff but not devoid of curiosity and humanity. As for Sandrine Kiberlain (the wife), she assumes the character to perfection of the bourgeois horrifying. A movie full of sensitivity and freshness.
