Sweet but lonesome Olof (Rolf Lassgård) lives by himself on his family’s farm after the death of his mother. Unable to read or write and therefore forced to take people on trust, Olof must depend upon his womanizing younger friend Erik (Johan Widerberg) to help him with the farmwork. Erik, once a sailor and now a part-time gravedigger, shamelessly uses Olof’s money for bets at the racetrack. One day, out of the blue, Olof places an advertisement in the local paper: "Lonely farmer, 39, own car. Seeks young lady housekeeper. Photograph appreciated." It’s not long before the ad attracts a surprising candidate: Ellen (Helena Bergström), a beautiful, 34-year-old, well-heeled city woman. As the summer progresses, Ellen effectively takes over both the house and Olof’s heart. Erik, also taken by Ellen, is determined to destroy her blossoming romance with Olof by unearthing the secret past he’s convinced she’s hiding.

Mademoiselle Chambon

Mademoiselle Chambon
$29.95

A love story that has bewitched audiences and critics worldwide, Mademoiselle Chambon is an ‘exquisite chamber piece’ (LA Times) that delicately captures the initial stirrings of romance. Vincent Lindon plays Jean, a burly and happily married housing contractor. One fateful afternoon, he picks up his son (Arthur Le Houérou) from school and meets the teacher, a willowy beauty named Mademoiselle Chambon (Sandrine Kiberlain). Their flirtation slowly builds over lingering glances and an impromptu violin solo in Chambon s apartment. Like the classical music they swoon over, their relationship builds through subtle movements: the tilt of a head, or an inadvertent brush of the cheek, fills their hearts with longing. Jean soon comes to a crossroads, having to choose between the intensity of his bond with Chambon or the responsibility and care he feels for his wife (Aure Atika) and child. A ‘beautifully observed’ (NY Magazine) evocation of what it feels like to fall dizzyingly in love, Mademoiselle Chambon won the Cesar (the French Oscar) for best Adapted Screenplay, and is an unqualified triumph for director Stéphane Brizé. DVD SPECIAL FEATURES INCLUDE: — Interview with Director Stéphane Brizé — Deleted Scenes with introduction by film critic Stephane Goudet — Trailers — Stills Gallery
