The Grocer's Son (Le Fils de l’épicier)
Directed by Eric Guirado, 2007, 1h36
With Nicolas Cazalé, Clotilde Hesme, Daniel Duval, Jeanne Goupil

Presented in partnership with the Columbia Maison Française

It is summer, and Antoine (Cazalé) is forced to leave the city to return to his family in Provence. His father is sick, so he must assume the lifestyle he thought he had shed—driving the family grocery cart from hamlet to hamlet, delivering supplies to the few remaining inhabitants. Accompanied by Claire (Hesme), a friend from Paris whom he secretly has a crush on, Antoine gradually warms up to his experience in the country and his encounters with the villagers, who initially seem stubborn and gruff, but ultimately prove to be funny and endearing.
