1958. Rose Pamphyle lives with her widower father who runs the village store. Engaged to the son of the local mechanic, she seems destined for the quiet, drudgeryfilled life of a housewife. But that’s not the life that Rose longs for.

Outstanding production design. The cinematography is very beautiful, especially the colors. Yeah, the story is a bit predictable, as is often the case with competition films. But overall it's very enjoyable. *continues typing with only two fingers*
A delightful and sweet film which oozes aroma of cinema how it used to be in the 50s and 60s: innocent and breezy bringing a sense of nostalgia to those who are 40+. It could have been a real gem if Romain Duris did not have the charm of a plasterboard.
Eine zuckersüsse, federleichte Reise zurück in die 50er nach Frankreich - das ist Regis Roinsards Mademoiselle Populaire. Hier werden die Konventionen der romantischen Komödie mit einem kaum noch bekannten Sport verbunden: Dem Speed Maschinen Schreiben. Man stelle sich eine der kitschig-naiven 50s Komödien mit dem Geist eines Sport-Dramas vor!(...)
Nice art direction, but the romance is weak and apathic. The movie kind of tries to be like "Funny Face" but not with the same Charisma even with Deborah Francois s sweetness. Still watchable, cause it has pretty good scenes as those ones with the competition.
