THEATR Mwldan Film Society presents Régis Roinsard’s Populaire (12A), on November 10 at 5.50pm.
Speed typing isn’t the best known of international sporting challenges. But during the '50s – when waists were small and men were mad – competitively firing off clattering typewriter keys was all the rage. Populaire is a beautifully constructed romantic comedy which weaves together the light wit of a classic screwball with the thrilling tension of a sports movie, for when Louis sees the manic pace with which his soon-to-be secretary Rose can type, he decides to start training her to be a world champion.
