Now thirty-three, he still does not speak. (He does express himself through colorful suits that would challenge any Wes Anderson character in nerd chic.) Paul’s aunts have only one dream for him: to win piano competitions. Although Paul practices dutifully, he remains unfulfilled until he submits to the interventions of his upstairs neighbor. Suitably named after the novelist, Madame Proust offers Paul a concoction that unlocks repressed memories from his childhood and awakens the most delightful of fantasies..

Captivating and Imaginative French Comedy Drama
Paul is in his thirties, he is mute having seen his parents die when he was but two. Since then he has been brought up by his fabulously eccentric aunts and has become something of a virtuoso on the piano. Then a fascinating neighbour tells him that she can help him by using a concoction of herbal tea.
He soon starts to see this Madame Proust regularly and starts regression therapy of sorts. She says that ‘you can drown bad memories in a flood of tiny joys’ – which is sage advice indeed. The film deals with the cycle of life, the past and a host of human issues.
What unfolds is a beautiful film in terms of style and sentiment about his life and those around him, with so much thrown in that it seems to be endlessly inventive. Guillaume Gouix as Paul and Attila (his wrestling father) is superb – even more so when you consider that he is unable to speak. Everyone plays their roles to the limit and no one goes over the top to lose believability. This is just a wonderful film with music, taxidermy, tree hugging and a whole lot of love besides – one for French film fans and for those who like something a bit different, but in a really nice way.
A movie like an herbal tea
We have all memories; good or bad, funny or sad. In some point of view we are made of memories. This movie is all about memories and friendship and music, love of nature and joy of life.
How come that an introvert “young” adult is not speaking for years? What is the real meaning of neighborhood? Could souls might be neighbors for each other? What is the real success in life?
Attila Marcel is strongly recommended if you are interested with these questions and if you would to have a cup of “herbal” tea with healing effects…
P.S.: There is a small scene after the end credits and a dedication, so don’t leave the movie without listening credits soundtrack and last piece of the movie: Everybody could change.
