1h 48min | Comedy, Drama, Romance | 11 January 1978 (France)
Solange is depressed: she’s stopped smiling, she eats little, she says less. She has fainting fits. Her husband Raoul seeks to save her by enlisting Stephane, a stranger, to be her lover. Although he listens to Mozart and has every Pocket Book arranged in alphabetical order, Stephane fails to cheer Solange. She knits. She does housework. Everyone, including their neighbor a vegetable vendor, agrees that she needs a child, yet she fails to get pregnant by either lover. The three take a job running a kids’ summer camp where they meet Christian, the precocious 13-year-old son of the local factory manager. It is Christian who restores Solange to laughter.
That movie has give me lot of fun. It is indeed sometimes a little dull but it keeps me alive till the end. In my opinion that movie has got something in it – the feeling that sometimes it may happen for sure. Also in our society. I think it is a actual topic also with been mature or getting to it. The movie contains problems from usual life, depression and other facts that everyone has got a contact with it in their life. Préparez vos mouchoirs is the movie for people with open mind and different view for the life and surrounding problems during our life. Maybe it has got a clue for that kind of problems? Very brave clues indeed but the life is short and we must have fun of it. Everyone must have.
