Le Fils De L'Epicier (The Grocer's Son)

  • Foundation Coffee House Sevendale House, Lever Street Manchester, M1 1JB (map)


Thirty-year-old Antoine leaves Paris and reluctantly return to the south of France for the summer to look after the family mobile grocery van while his father recovers from a heart attack. He gradually warms to his experience in the hills and his encounters with the villagers, in the process rediscovering life and loss in the countryside.

Evocatively capturing the bucolic beauty of provincial France, the gentle feel-good charmer sparkles with quirky humour and joie de vivre and guarantees to warm hearts with its classic story of a man finally coming of age.

"Eric Guirado's film is so radiantly natural and so relaxed - you bask in it."
