Storyline: Spring, 1958. 21-year-old Rose Pamphyle lives with her grouchy widower father who runs the village store. Engaged to the son of the local mechanic, she seems destined for the quiet, drudgery-filled life of a housewife. But that's not the life Rose longs for. When she travels to Lisieux in Normandy, where charismatic insurance agency boss Louis Echard is advertising for a secretary, the ensuing interview is a disaster. But Rose reveals a special gift - she can type at extraordinary speed. Unwittingly, the young woman awakens the dormant sports fan in Louis. If she wants the job she'll have to compete in a speed typing competition. Whatever sacrifices Rose must make to reach the top, Louis declares himself her trainer. He'll turn her into the fastest girl not only in the country, but in the world! But a love of sport doesn't always mix well with love itself ...

Popularize is Charming, Funny and Sweet
Found this on Netflix. I needed a feel good movie and this movie was perfect.

Set in the 1950 Romain Duris plays Louis Echard an insurance agent in need of a secretary. What he finds is a beautiful but clumsy girl whose saving grace is her fast typing with 2 fingers.

As the movie unfolds it just grabs holds and takes you on the journey to the World Championships in Speed Typing.

I became an instant fan of Romain and want to play catch up on his movies. I hope he finds a Hollywood script that allows him to shine.

Romain Duris reminds of Cary Grant, handsome, funny, charming and incredibly talented.

Refreshing comedy, funny & a great story
One of the best recent romantic comedies! French cinema went somehow sideways after certain point in the 20th century, but this wonderful movie proved that it might flourish back again.

Action happens in the 1950s, which is excellent for those, who keep dreaming about times when full skirts, record players and pastels were all the range. You get to see awesome cars of that decade, great interiors, etc. But most importantly - story is pretty interesting and not that predictable, which is quite an issue with romcoms. There are no corny jokes and it's a pretty pure, nice film with a strong female lead in it, showing that anything is possible if you work hard for it.

If what you want an old-fashioned romcom Cinderella-style, you got it. That's the one.

Good atmosphere
The strength of Populaire lies in the atmosphere of the period and the accurate depiction (at least it seems to be) of France in the late 50's.

On the content, it is less enthusiastic. The movie is quite uneven, alternating between good, dynamic passages, and a lot more heavy ones weighing down the rhythm. The plot is, in the end, relatively conventional, predictable and struggles rather quickly, so much that one starts to switch off after barely the hour mark. The last 30 minutes are particularly laborious and give the impression that Roinsard didn't know where to go nor how to end his story.

One could have also appreciated stronger and more developed supporting characters because the Duris-François duo, though effective and complementary, is a bit alone.

Drumline with Typewriters
A very sugary fairy-tail esque romantic comedy with plenty of style and flavour. The male lead seems to have the issues, unlike the female lead, which was a nice reversal.

It's nothing too overly dramatic and stupid like most romantic comedies sercombe to in their third acts. Perhaps because of the "sports movie" element to it.

Overall it's very sweet. You'll love Déborah François in the lead role, along with Romain Duris as a man who makes very odd facial expressions. The cinematography is very beautiful and lush. Highly recommended for anyone.

Wonderfully silly and bright and well acted
Populaire (2012)

A French comedy, set in the late 1950s, and centering around a typing championship? Yes, bizarre, and warm and funny. I liked it a lot.

The star here is the completely delightful Deborah Francois, who is cast and who acts a bit like an Audrey Hepburn type, which is a total compliment. Not that Francois needs that kind of comparison—she takes on the task of learning to type with enormous focus and humble prowess. With two fingers. And she almost wins a competition that way.

Enter the other star, a bigger name in France, Romain Duris. He's a comic oddball, meant to be very handsome but not a hunk (sorry Romain). He depends on his wry, underplayed humor to win the hearts of the females in each movie—and in the audience. He takes on Francois with the idea of teaching her to use all her fingers and maybe, with some serious athletic training, compete for the big time. At typing.

It's a farce, but overflowing with charm. The sets and colors are wonderful per- 60s "gay" and light. French style. There is an ongoing critique built in (in a watery way) about how women in that era have typing as their ultimate goal. And typing for men. The irony (and falseness) are apparent.

There is inevitably a troubled romance that gets stirred in the mix—and it's a classic mismatch made in heaven.

In all, well done, funny, and smart. And styling right to the end with the big finale—well, I can't say where or why. See it.

Worth to watch!
OK, it isn't a masterpiece, but it's a very decent and pleasant movie to watch. The film captures perfectly the 60's romantic comedies spirit in everything: from the credits in the beginning, script, music, costumes and settings to direction and, of course, a happy ending.

It could have easily Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck in the leading roles. Halfway in the film, my partner who had no idea what the film was about, asked me if actually the movie was done in the sixties.

If you are tired from the many angst-creating movies of today, this is a very good pick to relax and just enjoy.For people of my generation it will revoke many pleasant memories of innocence.

Typa Snypa Soldier Spy
I went into this film with low hopes and came out pleasantly surprised. I suggest that you go into the film the same way that I did to increase your chances of getting similar satisfying result;)

BriefyBeefyFilmSummary: This film is about a girl called Rose, her skill for typewriting and her relationship with her boss/trainer Louis. Louis is a mardy insurance man who struggles to emote because of fact that he's never 'won anything'. He also kind of regrets and dislikes some of the actions and outcomes that occurred in the past. Rose becomes Louis' secretary and she does a terrible job. Luckily Louis notices Rose' skill for typing and decides to pursue his chance of 'winning at something' by entering her in the regional typing competition. But is that really his true motive? I feel that this film could weirdly be best described as the french, romantic, 15 certificate 'Karate kid'. Louis taking the role of Miyagi and Rose taking the role of Daniel(just putting it out there Daniel and Miyagi do not partake in any form of mouth to mouth contact in the motion picture film 'The Karate Kid')

This film was cute, stylistic and had a very optimistic story and message. There were also lots of good looking costumes and haircuts which gives the film bonus points from me.

Whatever you do do't go into this film expecting some kind of major thrill or drama. Okay there are some minor stir ups but that doesn't count.

The film surprisingly discusses a lot about feminism and equal rights with women. This gives it another bonus point because it displays the message in such an uncomfortable yet realistic and funny fashion. I kinda like this.

The acting is okay, the characters are okay and their relationships are believable. The script was bizarre at times, funny at times and classic at times(if only it was all three at once throughout corr). niceynice7/10

Popularity or not?
It might feel simple in its premise (what romantic comedy doesn't? Only a few might have a real complex story), but the actors are really good in it. Actually it is very reminiscent of classic movies and its not a coincidence that the costumes and or haircuts are very much in the style of Audrey Hepburn. It could have starred the actress from the past easily and feel the same.

So while the viewer might know where this movie is leading (no real surprise here), it is the journey that makes it worthwhile. Rich, poor it doesn't really matter, as long as you follow your dreams. Whatever they are and whatever obstacles are in your way.

Forced, predictable and worst of all - boring.
"Populaire" is finely crafted piece of junk that I could barely watch to the end; and watch it I did, but mostly in the same way that one is rubber-necking when passing a really bad car accident.

While the sets and performances manage to give us a kitschy feel of the 60s, everything else falls flat on its face: the story is dull, predictable and forced to the same degree that "Armageddon" was forced. Yes I am comparing this film to "Armageddon" - they both share an important "quality" (for lack of a better word): artificially created drama to keep the story moving. In Armageddon, every time the story slows down too much there is a meteor shower, while in "Populaire" boredom is interrupted by senseless arguments between main protagonists - meteor showers of different kinds.

Characters are ill-conceived, their motivations inexplicable, their actions everything but funny, and as a result, the film flows like a stale joke told by a three-year old who forgot the punch-line.

Someone said that this is a "feel-good" film. Nothing could be further from the truth. Even if we ignore the overly sexist world of this film in which men are gods and women are ordered around, we are still left with a sadistic boss who never manages to be likable, his little less psychotic secretary whose motivation is unclear to the very end and their family and friends who manage to stay boring despite suffering from severe mental problems.

We never get to believe that the main protagonist really wishes to compete in the speed-typing. As a matter of fact, the only reason she accepts the challenge is because it was a condition for her employment. Why would a boss employ an otherwise useless secretary just to have her compete in speed-typing? None of those things make any sense in the film, we are just supposed to accept that speed-typing was a world-class event in the 60s (it was not), that your average boss is crazy about your winning a meaningless competition, and that women were aching to work as secretaries, while male bosses were naturally psychotic, and that all that was fun somehow. To make it harder to suspend one's disbelief, the main protagonist is showed typing in an entirely impossible manner. Normally, actors and directors go out of their way to try and portray such detail with as much realism as possible, but here, the director has thrown caution to the wind, probably in an attempt to make the film less boring; however, it achieved the exact opposite.

Here and there it seemed that "Populaire" was meant to be a little quirky, the way "Delicatessen" or "Amelie" was... or maybe I just wished for some redemption for the time wasted watching it. As you may guess by now, that didn't pan either.

In the end what we are left with is an inexplicably dumb premise, with shallow characters, leading us on a wild-goose chase of forced emotions and relationships. All in all, one of the worst films of recent French cinema.

She Looked Very Cute and Fashionable, and That's All, but It's Enough
Déborah François as the heroin, Rose Pamphyle, looked very cute and fashionable. That's all, but it's enough for me to see this movie for a change. I am guessing that Régis Roinsard, the director of this movie, just wanted to make Déborah look as cute and fashionable as possible in this movie, and he was successful.

Although this movie has many shortcomings that audience can point out, it doesn't matter at all. For example, the plot of this movie is quite stereotyped, but it is better to make audience concentrated in the heroin Déborah.

I love Kabuki, whose plots are usually dubious. The audience of Kabuki mainly wants to be fascinated with the beauty of Kabuki actors, and a deep plot would disturb the entertainment of Kabuki.

Of course, Déborah François herself is very attractive. She shows a variety of expressions, smile, anger, tears, envy, and love, and all of them are charming.

If you thought that she was cute in the trailer, it would be worth seeing this movie.
