While Lucien is under the Volkswagen fixing it. Christelle arrives to talk to him. While Lucien slides out from under the VW, the back of the car appears spotless and clean. Later the 20 year old dust is back on the car. See more »
An enchanting, amiable film, 'Les Petites Couleurs' flirts with the surreal in order to express the allure of the everyman by flaunting the significance of friendship and the dynamic of relationships. The film tells the simple heart-warming story of coiffeuse Christelle, who assumes an identity after escaping her suppressed existence under husband Francis. Upon arriving at the glitzy Galaxy Motel, Christelle meets Mona, the proprietor and together the two form a charming camaraderie, bonding over their affection for the musical soap opera 'Le ranch de l'amour'. Christelle experiences almost a second adolescence because of this encounter, and vibrancy is added to the pale pastel painting of the protagonist. The film, although predictable is pleasant: it unravels the values of humanity and humility in order to illustrate how adding a little colour to one's life can have an ambitious and positive conclusion.
