“As a tale of a woman finding herself - and finding out how to truly survive and thrive in her own skin - Antoinette in the Cévennes is both thoughtful and charming.”~Sarah Ward, Concrete Playground

Aroview: A warm hearted French comedy from writer director Caroline Vignal, starring Laure Calamy as a school teacher on a journey of self-discovery in unexpected circumstances.

When her secret lover (and the father of one of her pupils) bails on their summer holiday plans because his wife organised a surprise trekking holiday in the Cévennes National Park, she decides to follow their track, alone except for a gorgeous donkey.

The picturesue Cévennes was made famous by Robert Louis Stevenson whose book 'Travels with a Donkey in the Cevennes' is based on his own experience of the journey, which traditionally requires a donkey.

A modest yet beautifully formed comedy that is unmissable for anyone hankering for some traditional Gallic charm.
