For December, we offer you the movie “La Fine fleur” by Pierre Pinaud, with the very talented Catherine Frot. A French comedy that tells with tenderness and lightness the portrait of a passionate and touching woman.

Synopsys : Eve Vernet was the greatest rose designer. Today, she is on the verge of bankruptcy, on the verge of being bought by a powerful competitor.
