French Movie Club | The Sweet Escape (Comme un Avion)

French Movie Club | The Sweet Escape (Comme un Avion)



Join us in person for a conversation on a French movie previously seen at home. Please note: basic French conversational ability is required. This group is for participants 18 years and older.

This month's meeting is on The Sweet Escape (Comme un Avion).

Middle-aged graphic design company manager Michel loves planes. Day and night - in the shower, at work, riding his scooter - he dreams of life as an airborne explorer. Then one day a photograph stops him dead in his tracks. Kayaks - they could almost be planes, planes without wings. Seized by a sudden crazy impulse, Michel orders the whole package online: canoe, paddles - everything he needs for an expedition. His wife Rachelle encourages him to set out alone on his escapade. So what if he's never rowed a boat in his life?
Directed and written by Bruno Podalydès. Starring Bruno Podalydès, Sandrine Kiberlain, and Agnès Jaoui.
