Thirty-year-old Antoine leaves Paris and reluctantly returns to the Provence summer to look after the family mobile grocery van while his father recovers from a stroke. He gradually warms to his experience in the hills and his encounters with the villagers, in the process rediscovering life and love in the countryside. Evocatively capturing the bucolic beauty of provincial France, this gentle feel-good charmer (a box office hit around the world) sparkles with quirky humour and joie de vivre and guarantees to warm hearts with its classic story of a man finally coming of age.
