Though largely improvised, this funny, truthful, deeply moving account of a young woman’s quest for good company – and perhaps, a dream lover – is brilliantly executed in every respect. Let down by a boyfriend and horrified at the idea of a summer stuck in Paris, secretary Delphine (Marie Rivière) tries to salvage her holiday by joining friends or travelling solo around France. A masterpiece.
