Movie: Antoinette in the Cervennes

How lovely to see a film again!! This was part of the French Film Festival, but it has now gone on to general exhibition at the Palace Cinemas. Antoinette, a school teacher, was planning to have a naughty holiday with her lover, but her plans were upended when her lover’s wife made alternative plans for the vacation. She decides to go on her planned walk alone through the Cevennes with a hired donkey, Patrick, where she is the talk of the other trekkers. Given that we can’t travel anywhere at the moment, it was an enjoyable form of vicarious travel, and a gentle romantic comedy.
