Beautifully photographed (cinematography is by Vincent Gallot), the Drôme department of Southeastern France looks just divine, and the direction by Nils Tavernier (son of the great Bertrand Tavernier) is suitably relaxed.

The Ideal Palace is a likeable, worthy and often quite moving film. Ferdinand Cheval occupies a tiny, mostly unknown speck of history, but his story mightily deserved to be told.
