          Life loving 40-something La (Oscar nominee Berenice Bejo, The Artist) works in retail, and is happily married to Marc (Vincent Cassel), a conservative and somewhat insecure salesman. La has long been considered a dreamer by her know-it-all best friend Karine (the inimitable Flore...nce Foresti), who seems content enough with her advertising executive job and life with gentle giant Francis (Franois Damiens) and their two kids. But something is about to upset the intricate balance of this quartet. Over dinner one evening, La unexpectedly announces she is trying her hand at writing a novel, a declaration met with some bemusement; Marc is certainly unconvinced. Las burst of creativity triggers an apparently threatened Karine to pick up her own pen, and even Francis hilariously dusts off a long-abandoned artistic side. When Las book is picked up by a major publisher, great things seem assured if only her friends and husband can handle it. Those who enjoyed the Italian hit Perfect Strangers are sure to find this delicious tale of tested loyalties as equally winning. This is one to share with your own friends and partners; an opportunity to sit back and enjoy the sparks that fly on screen - and off.

          A true cinema delight for romantics and lovers of enriched drama, Il Postino - The Postman is a gentle Italian tale about the power of words, the strength of love and the ability to overcome life's many emotional challenges. Mario (Oscar nominee Massimo Troisi in his final screen... performance) is a newly appointed mailman who is madly in love with the most beautiful woman in town, Beatrice Russo (Maria Grazia Cucinotta). Bumbling, interminably shy and far too nervous to tell her how he feels, Mario becomes inspired when a world-famous Chilean poet visits the small island community. Pablo Neruda (Award winning actor Philippe Noiret, Cinema Paradiso) is a revelation to the otherwise introverted and soft spoken Mario and with his expert help Mario not only finds the right words to woo Beatrice but has a fighting chance to win her over.

Aznavour films his life and lives as he films. Wherever he goes, his camera is there with him, recording every...thing, the key moments of his life, his travels, his friends, his loves, his boredom. A few months before he passed, he began, together with Marc di Domenico, the derailing of these films and decided to make a film... his film.
