In this week’s Cinema Box is ‘Comme un avion’ (‘Like a Plane’). A comedy by French director Bruno Podalydès, the film is an ode to freedom and happiness.
Tired of city life and the drudgery of routine a 50-year-old man decides to take a trip by kayak, much to the surprise of his friends. His partner agrees and they set off on an adventure where they encounter the unexpected.
Its a simple tale and very soon the audience is completely wrapped up with the characters.
The director and actor Bruno Podalydès is perfect in the role of man who has forgotten the joys of simplicity.
The comedy is full of rich dialogue and burlesque moments, the supporting cast of Pierre Arditi and Agnès Jaoui are a delight.
‘Comme un avion’ is a tender and funny film that brings a smile to the face. Enjoy, see you soon.
