The Grocer's Son

This well written drama from France is directed by Eric Guirado and revolves around Antoine (Nicolas Cazale), a man who left his town in search of bigger and better things. Unfortunately for Antoine, his life is far from idyllic as he lives in small apartment in the city and cannot hold down a job due to his temper.

Interestingly enough, fate deals Antoine a new deck cards when his father (Daniel Duval) is taken into hospital due to a heart attack which unleashes a plethora of mixed emotions. From the estranged relationship with his family, Antoine decides to return south to his father's grocery shop in order to run the store until his father gets better... of course, Antoine has also lost another job since then.

Although Antoine is a grumpy 30-something man, his neighbour in the city is Claire (Clotilde Hesme) who actually likes him and he asks her to accompany him to Provence where she can complete her off-campus studies without the hustle and bustle of the city.

Unable to hold a job nor a relationship, his family and friends are surprised that Claire and Antoine are not a couple and when his rudeness starts driving away customers in the store, Claire is brought to balance his rudeness.

Guirado perfectly captures the spirit of Antoine as he is taken back to his childhood in an effort to redefine himself that makes this journey so pleasant. At times, The Grocer's Son has quite a few comedic scenes that perfectly goes hand in hand with the cast, the plot and the relationships in the film.

Insightful from start to finish!
