Film: Mr Blake at Your Service

 

 

 

If you are looking for an escape from what is currently going on in the world, this entertaining and heart-warming comedy could be for you.

Depressed after the death of his French wife Mr Blake (John Malkovich ) decides to revisit the place where their romance started at a manor house in northern France.

 

 

The manor is owned by Madame de Beauvillier (Fanny Ardant) who is struggling to maintain it with a staff of two (and a grumpy cat, one of the stars in this film), and hoping that guests will bring in enough income.

Odile, the cook (Emille Dequenne) had advertised for a butler, and when Mr Blake arrives she ushers him to a room in the staff quarters. The only way he can stay on, is to accept the job,

and try to be a butler. Will it work out?

 

 

 

Director Gilles Lagardiner adapted his best-selling book The Paris Labyrinth (which has been translated into 17 languages, and sold over a million copies in 22 countries) into this funny and rather predictable feel-good film, with great actors cast in the leading roles.

100 minutes.

Spoken in French with English translation.

Showing at Luna Leederville, Windsor Nedlands and Luna SX Fremantle.
