French comedy about a country girl who moves to a city to become a typist. Although the job interview is a total fiasco, she has a gift - she can type extremely quickly.

French romcom. It's 1958 and, like many girls her age, Rose Pamphyle aspires to become a secretary. But she's clumsy and disorganised, meaning she's a disaster in the office. When she starts working for insurance man Louis Echard, her one true talent starts to shine through - Rose can type at lightning speed. A former sportsman, her boss cannot resist his competitive instincts and decides to enter Rose in the speed-typing championships.

In French with English subtitles.
