  • Populaire plays like a musical - you expect anyone, at any time, to break into song. show more

  • For all the earnestness with which the filmmakers replicate the muted colors and attitudes of the post-war era, they ultimately fail to say anything truly interesting about either the past or the present, resulting in a work that feels as superficial as it does slick. show more

  • While Populaire would still have suffered from being overlong and overfamiliar, a smoother leading man could have done much to boost the intended Cary Grant vibe. show more

    A delightful, but painful, romp through the culture of 1959 when a woman\'s worth was based on how well she cooked, typed, took shorthand, or performed her housework duties. Luckily, things have changed. Rose changed when she won typing contests but realized who she was internally defined her person.
