The Grocer's Son

The Grocer's Son

One summer 30-year-old Antoine is forced to leave Paris to return to his family in Provençe. His father, a traveling grocer, has fallen sick, so Antoine must assume the lifestyle he thought he left behind—driving the family grocery cart from hamlet to hamlet, delivering supplies to the few remaining inhabitants. Antoine's efforts are half-hearted and he fails to ingratiate himself with the villagers, but with support from Claire, his friend and crush from the city, he gradually rises to the occasion. This surprise French box-office hit is about the late coming-of-age of a man re-discovering life and love in the countryside.
