Because it’s not just Amélie Poulain, the small screen is banking on another film with Audrey Tautou which is good.
At 8:55 p.m., you have an appointment with Audrey Tautou And Guillaume Canet on Arte: the channel will offer Together, that’s all, of Claude Berri, touching adaptation of Anna Gavalda’s best-seller released in 2007 in the cinema. We couldn’t have found a more appropriate title!
The story ? Camille (Audrey Tautou) takes care of cleaning in the evenings in the offices and draws during his spare time. Philibert (Laurent Stocker), a young aristocrat keen on History, occupies a huge apartment belonging to his family. Frank (Guillaume Canet) is a cook and takes care of his grandmother, Paulette (Françoise Bertin), a funny old lady. Their paths will cross and allow them to get to know each other and understand each other better.
First screen adaptation of a novel by Anna Gavalda, Together, that’s all allowed Laurent Stocker to win the 2008 César for Most Promising Male. A deserved reward for the actor who shines in what is Claude Berri’s penultimate film. A story that we like, which charmed Première when it was released.
I would like someone to wait for me somewhere: What is the adaptation of Anna Galvalda’s collection worth?
Here is Sophie Grassin’s review: “With Together, that’s all, adapted from the colossal success of Anna Gavalda, Claude Berri offers a pick-me-up for today’s France gripped by disarray. And signs a self-portrait which exalts the vitality of the tiny, unearths hope beneath the “almost nothing”. The film resonates as an invitation to live, with others, at one’s own level, despite one’s reservoirs of bitterness and calluses in the heart. (…) Claude Berri, who experienced the dark waters of depression and enlisted his own speech therapist in this fiction, films this strange transplant with an energy devoid of sentimentality. (…) The actors, first and foremost Audrey Tautou, remarkable as a worn-out but determined little soldier, obviously have a lot to do with it.”
