Normandy Nude

Philippe Le Guay (The Women on the 6th Floor) co-writes and directs this tale of a proud farming community who must put their grievances aside to save their village.

"The charming town of Mêle-sur-Sarthe, Normandy, is in crisis. Dairy and livestock prices have plummeted due to a flood of imports, and farmers are threatened with foreclosure. Mayor Georges Balbuzard (François Cluzet, The Intouchables) does his best to fight and raise awareness of their plight, but the situation isn’t deemed newsworthy for national media. Things seem hopeless... until the day famous American photographer Newman (Toby Jones, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) passes through the village, inadvertently discovering the perfect backdrop for his next shoot. Balbuzard sees a rare opportunity, and sets about convincing the townsfolk - the farmers, the butcher, the pharmacist, some 200 in all - to participate. The catch? They all have to pose naked!" (Alliance Française)

Director Philippe Le Guay keeps focused on their struggles, so that the comedy remains organic and unobtrusive.

Most of the characters are simply too one-dimensional to really create even one moment of genuine emotion rather than any kind of foreseeable payoff...

...the film is coasting a bit. Perhaps there is more to cooking up a perfect country stew than just having good ingredients.
