New MR MORGAN'S LAST LOVE Trailer will have you Dreaming of France #book2movies

Michael Caine is Mr. Morgan in Mr. Morgan's Last Love
There's been a U.S. release date plus a charming new trailer since I last posted about Mr. Morgan's Last Love back in April.  I've been following the movie, written and directed by German filmmaker Sandra Nettleback, and based on French author, Francoise Dorner's novel La Douceur Assassine since November of 2011 ... I'm thrilled to learn it will finally hit theaters here in the U.S. in October.

Besides some additional French locations, the trailer gives us a  glimpse of Mr. Morgan's deceased wife (Jane Alexander), his angry son, played by Justin Kirk (Animal Practice) and some sweet and charming moments between the aging American widower and the much younger dance teacher portrayed by Clemence Poesy. 

Help! At the beginning of the trailer, what are the young women working behind the cafe counter saying? I'm pretty sure the first girl is saying she doesn't understand; but what does the second say?

  1. The scenery in this one is so beautiful. I can't wait! Check out Louise's post about another French movie that looks great, Populaire. Thanks for playing along today. Here’s my Dreaming of France meme

    1. Thanks for reminding me to check out Louise's post - I can not wait for September to see that movie! Thanks for stopping by; some really great Dreaming of France stuff today.

  2. The second girl says, "Why do all Americans think everyone can speak their language". Not very polite. I look forward to seeing this movie.

    1. Thanks! I wondered if it was something like that. And also very impolite of Mr. Morgan not to at least TRY to speak French. A little Bonjour goes a long way, right?

  3. That looks really good! I can't wait to see it -- especially all those scene in Paris.

    I wonder if that's a running gag? He speaks English at them and they speak French at him every day but it doesn't matter because he always gets the same thing.

  4. Oh this does look wonderful. I can't find an Australian release date on this, hopefully soon. I see Linda has translated the vendeuse for you. As Joy says it's often a process. You plunge in in your all too bad French, bumble on a bit, and then when you reach the end of your abilities they will often convert to typically good English and rescue you. I even had some people comment on it- it's like a dance or a game, you speak French to me, I speak English to you.... Once in a fromagerie, when trying to discuss the finer points of sheep cheese, my brain fried and I couldn't proceed in French, the girl serving me then dropped what I thought was her native French, and proceeded in what was clearly native English, with an Australian accent! Turned out she was from Brisbane.
