What’s it worth The Student and Monsieur Henri, rescheduled tonight on France 2? Here is the review of First : “It’s what we call “daddy’s cinema”, carefully crafted, pleasant to follow, provider of emotions immediately gone away (a smile here, a pang of heart there), also immersed in his a subject that is disconnected from its time. Either the story of Constance, a teenager from the provinces, on the edges, who sublets a room to a grumpy grandpa to study in Paris. On the menu: clash of characters played out in advance, nice number by Claude Brasseur, sub-plot with unexpected tragicomic twists and exalted life lesson, all against a backdrop of dialogues oiled as in the theater.
