The Suitor

83 minutes

A young man has a series of romantic misadventures in search of his ideal wife, unaware the right girl for him is right under his nose. Gently melancholy farce revealing a purely visual comedy talent that followed in the footsteps of Jacques Tati but never received equal recognition.
