"Concealing narrative shows of strength and delicately treading the line between comedy and social realism, [director] Grégory Magne creates a highly engaging concoction (also much indebted to its leading actors’ talent) which exudes a salutary and healthy air of humility." —Fabien Lemercier, Cineuropa
"[Director] Grégory Magne's French comedy-drama is quietly delightful." —Ed Potton, Times (U.K.)

Guillaume, a professional driver in the midst of a custody battle for his daughter after a recent divorce, lands a new job as the chauffeur for master perfumer Anne Walberg. A selfish and temperamental diva whose olfactory talent is now wasted masking a factory's foul emissions and creating deodorants, she longs to return to her glory years making in-demand perfumes. At first Anne and Guillaume clash but soon a budding friendship blossoms that helps them learn to mend their lives. Note adapted from Filmfest DC
