rated for 0 + years
Odette is a lovely, unassuming sales assistant in a department store. She has two loves: Josephine Baker's chansons and Balthasar Balsan's novels. When she meets him at a reading, she is star-struck and smitten. He ignores her until several simultaneous incidents throw him into a depression. Just then, letters from his true fan Odette start arriving… The magazine Style likened Schmitt's directing debut to Amélie.
