The Singer (2006)

***
France

A thoroughly inoffensive, arthouse-grandma-friendly concoction about a middle-aged performer in rural dance-halls and a much-younger single Mum who has a one-night-stand with him and gradually grows to regret it less and less. The intelligent, professional performers turn in intelligent, professional performances and writer-director Xavier Giannoli's overarching mission is to send you home content and mildly chipper at having witnessed another thoroughly neat, thoroughly redundant May-December romance.

wr/dir: Xavier Giannoli
cast: Gérard Depardieu, Cécile De France, Mathieu Amalric, Christine Citti, Patrick Pineau, Alaine Chanone, Christophe
