The French Minister (2013) ✭✭✭½
Netflix

Entertaining comedy about French politics. But I'm being redundant. The great Bertrand Tavernier just keeps going. He's a tough old thing. So is Niels Arestrup.






When Day Breaks (2012) ✭✭✭✭
Netflix

Melancholy Serbian import about a retired music teacher (the superb Mustafa Nadarevic) who learns the tragic fate of his parents in WWII. Many special moments, but marred by a schmaltzy ending. Still well worth your time.






Nice and Easy (2014)✭✭✭½ 
TV5

Charming rom-com written from the male perspective. About a committed slacker who finds that love is worth getting off the couch.
