Impeccably written, beautifully enacted, frequently funny and charmingly photographed, Le Week-End (2013) is an absolute treat.
British director Roger Michell directed this delightful film based on the story by Hanif Kureshi (of My Beautiful Laundrette and the Buddha of Suburbia fame).
How I stumbled upon this gem I can’t recollect now but I’m glad I did.
It’s one of the many unfair tragedies of life that Le Week-End never got a wide release and grossed little at the box office!
Life – No Fun
Life is anything but fun for the vast, nameless majority for whom a new dawn yields no joy but brings forth only fresh pain (job issues, money problems, children trouble, marital infidelity, health crises etc).
