A Lovely Valley

Gaël Lépingle
France, 2015


Festival International de Cinéma de Marseille

Tënk's film review

The provincial lifestyle at the centre of Gaël Lépingle's film is often considered too banal to merit being the subject of a documentary. Yet here he takes the stretches of flat, uninspiring countryside, the identikit detached houses lined up in quiet residential areas, the villages just short of 'typical' that no-one wants to visit, the village halls, other communal areas, and even the locals themselves as backdrop to the tale of 'The Three Musketeers'. A romantic story (par excellence), a costume drama (of course) and a musical all rolled into one, which brings out the flecks of sparkle in the daily life of this 'nice valley'.
