Storyline

Georgette, a woman in her forties, lives alone. She works in an airport as a long-haul aircraft cleaner. Her drab life is somewhat alleviated thanks to her two passions: for opera and for game contests. She has never won any significant prize in any of the contests yet but her big break comes when she finally wins a luxury stay on the Reunion Island. As a holiday-mate, she chooses Lydie, her friend and co-worker, a native of the island... Written by Guy Bellinger

Perfect mid-afternoon t.v. flick
21 July 2007 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

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!
