Populaire (2012)

  • Conclusion: Populaire is a light and very beautiful period comedy that is perfect to see with someone special. The film arrives on Blu-ray framed in 1.85:1, not in its original aspect ratio of 2.39:1, but the framing is actually very convincing. Despite the fact that there is a French Blu-ray release which apparently has the film present in 2.39:1, I wonder if the new framing for the UK release is intentional. I will try to get additional information from and will update the review.

  • Summary: Blu-Ray Review: A fine romantic comedy - now how many times have I written those words! This UK blu-ray may be cropped to achieve a 1.85:1 presentation - a pity given how good the image and sound are.

  • Excerpt: Candy-colored to a potentially cavity-causing degree, Populaire is a bubbly regurgitation of retrograde romantic comedy tropes and reactionary sexual politics. It's 1958, and pretty young thing Rose Pamphyle (Déborah François) is eager to escape her small French village, as well as a perfunctory marriage proposal and her father's pharmacy, in hopes of becoming a city-dwelling secretary.

  • Excerpt: After a cavalcade of mediocre rom-coms from the other side of the Atlantic, it falls to France to beat the Americans at their own game. A winning homage to the Technicolor delights of Hollywood�s golden age, the beautifully coiffed Populaire might have been a vehicle for Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn in a parallel universe.
