If you’re looking for a rom-com to watch on Valentine’s Day, you might like Populaire, a 2012 film starring Romain Duris and Déborah François. Here’s the trailer, and it’s available on Netflix in French sub-titled in English. Set in 1958, the film takes on what it meant to be a modern young woman. Rose Pamphyle has only one talent – la dactylographie (lah dak-tea-loh-graph-e) or typing. Like many young women of the post-war years, Rose wants to be a secretary. She leaves her Nowheresville town in Normandy for a job in an insurance office in Lisieux, which is only slightly less Nowheresville. Her boss has a plan for Rose – to enter and win a typing competition. I won’t give away the rest, except to say that it gave me a few good laughs as I rooted for Rose the typist and the young woman with dreams of a career and the love of her life.
