The Student and Mr. Henri

I watched The Student and Mr. Henri. It is a French movie so there is some subtitles. I watched it on Tubi. It has Claude Brasseur, Noémie Schmidt, Guillaume de Tonquédec, Valérie Kéruzoré, and Antoine Glemain in it.

Big Warning: Have tissues ready because the ending is sad. I even cried at the end.

In this movie, a woman named Constance gets to go to a university in Paris. Although she has have terrible trouble with test taking she decides to go. (I am horrible at tests too. She looks for an apartment and she finds one. A grumpy old man named Henri owns the apartment. He makes her take an questionnaire. Later she finds out she is the one he picks. For exchange for rent, he wants her to break up his son’s marriage. She doesn’t really want to do it, but she doesn’t want to lose the apartment. She tries to seduce the son and she fails at first. The son’s wife is weird. But later she tries to seduce the son again and it works. It almost ends the marriage, but the wife ends out she is pregnant. So they get back together. Constance doesn’t lose the apartment because she has grown on Henri. She finds out she failed the test she trying to take. Henri suggests for her to try a music school. So she does. After she comes back she finds out Henri died. She tells Henri’s son that she failed the test to get in the music school, but she will try again.

I loved this movie. Next week I’m watching Gerda.
