In this buoyant, fast-paced, romantic comedy from director Jean-Paul Rappeneau (“Cyrano de Bergerac”), the French government and much of bourgeois society flee Paris for Bordeaux on the eve of the German occupation in 1940.When they take up temporary residence at the Hotel Splendide, their worlds amusingly collide.With a stellar cast led by Isabelle Adjani, Gerard Depardieu, and Virginie Ledoyen, this is France’s entry for the Foreign Language Film Award at this year’s Oscars.
