A middle-aged, semi-illiterate handyman (Gérard Depardieu), long used to the jibes of friends and family about his lack of smarts, chances to share a park bench with an engaging, well-read ninetysomething (Gisèle Casadesus). The articulate oldster soon leads him on the path to the joy of literature, and to self-esteem, in this charming Gallic effort. Sophie Guillemin, Claire Maurier, Maurane co-star. 82 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: French Dolby Digital stereo; Subtitles: English; featurette. In French with English subtitles.
