Georgette lives alone, works as a long-haul aircraft cleaner and has never won anything significant but her big break comes when she wins a luxury stay on the Reunion Island. She chooses to go with her friend Lydie, a native of the island.
Georgette works as an airplane cleaner and has two passions in life: opera and TV quiz shows that promise you the world - On her fortieth birthday, bingo. Having never left an airport tarmac, she wins a trip to Reunion Island in the heart of the Indian Ocean. At the check-in, she meets for the first time the famous pianist Tancrède Ferté Laroche, who, rumor has it, is fast going downhill. As luck would have it, their seats are side by side, for when it comes to music, Georgette's a huge fan. But she isn't so happy to discover that they're also staying at the same hotel. It's as though fate were desperately trying to bring together two people who were never destined to meet - And everything stands in their way: she's as poor as he is rich; he's as miserly as she is generous.Written by
Sometimes you just don't feel like watching a masterpiece. If you want some gentle entertainment full of exotic locations and simple human emotions,this is your candy. Let's be frank; it's a guilty pleasure of immense reward as "Le roman De Georgette" will surely be forgotten as quickly as you can read this review. The story involves a woman of modest dispositions who falls for a narcissistic pianist in the beautiful surroundings of Maurice Island. The casting is uneven, especially with the male actors, but the plot's silliness sort of makes up for the average acting. All in all, it's fairly cute and sometimes even moving but beware: this movie will be appreciated at his fullest if one leaves her/his working brains in the basement!
