Martin Provost / France, Belgium / 2020 / 109 min / French
Alsace, the 1960s. Running a household and bending to conjugal duty is what Paulette Van Der Beck ardently teaches in her “housekeeping school” for girls.

The spirit of May ’68 is certainly in the air… A comedy with Juliette Binoche in the lead.
