Storyline

Thirty-year-old Alice's occupation is rather unusual for a woman : she works as an engineer on a freighter. She loves her job and does it competently but even in a greasy blue overall a woman will be a woman, with her heart, her desires and her seduction... In such conditions can an all-male crew really remain totally insensitive to her charms? A situation all the more complicated as not only does Alice leave her fiancé Felix behind but she also discovers on board the Fidélio that the captain is Gaël, her first love...

Hermosísima!
8 July 2016 | by tercersolSee all my reviews

A whole new version of a french romance. I loved the translation from romantic European balconies to salty freighter balconies. I also appreciate a lot the 'woman empowerment' factor. I find it really important that cinema worries about representing other types of femininity. Romance has been idealized for so many years and I think this one explains very well a type of love that has always existed but not everybody likes to admit. It kind of helped me understand it without freaking out about my own experiences. Photography was gorgeous! The casting was amazing, it's so inclusive and diverse. The music caught me.
