MONTRÉAL WORLD FILM FESTIVAL 2010: Focus on World Cinema
A magical summer interlude, like a secret gift, awaits a renowned young woman in a dark moment in history when she reluctantly accepts an invitation to a couple’s farmhouse in the South of France.
Based on a true episode in the young life of the charismatic French philosopher Simone Weil, this was the charming historic encounter with her host, Gustave Thibon, the "philosopher peasant" who would later posthumously publish one of her most famous manuscripts.
Under the spell of this "enchanted land" of vineyards, lavender, and the Provencal sun, Simone, Gustave and his wife Yvette live a unique and precious moment of intimacy. As teasing, complicity, and jealousies give way to love and laughter, the power of sheer joy makes even time stop for a moment in occupied France.
