Partie de Campagne (1936)

Here is a 40 minute French short. A family from Paris spends the day in the country. These two country boys  hit on the only two ladies, a mother and daughter, and then they all go rowing on the river.  The daughter starts making out with the guy who sort of looks like Ricky Gervais, and then just leaves to go back to Paris.

Flash forward to a few years later, when the daughter marries the annoying hiccupping guy and returns to the countryside.  She encounters hot Ricky guy once more. She tells him she has always been thinking about him and appears sad that she is not with him.  Hey, nobody held a gun to her head and forced her to marry annoying hiccuping guy. And she only knew Ricky for less than an hour. That's not enough time to form the basis of a relationship.  She doesn't know anything about him apart that he's good at making out. What's his favorite color? Does he enjoy cooking? What's his middle name?  I watched this entire thing and she didn't even ask him once.  You can't say that you've been thinking about someone romantically for such a long time without even knowing the basic facts about him. My husband's middle name is Earl, and I still married him.  

In the beginning, there was a notice that the movie was unfinished. If you're not going to take the time to finish your movie, I'm not going to take the time to give you a good rating. This movie gets a 2/10.
