My Donkey, My Lover & I

Antoinette, a schoolteacher, is looking forward to her long planned summer holiday with her married lover Vladimir, the father of one of her pupils. When she learns that Vladimir has to cancel because his wife organized a surprise hiking vacation, Antoinette decides to follow their tracks, accompanied by a protective donkey named Patrick.

“Calamy delivers a beautifully open performance at the center of an utterly winning comedy.”

The Los Angeles Times

“Refreshing, amusing and utterly enjoyable. With its easy pace and genial company, “My Donkey, My Lover & I” is a journey worth taking.”

The Washington Post

“Laure Calamy (Call My Agent!) hijacks a family trekking holiday in this warm comedy of infidelity and animal magnetism.”

The Guardian

“Consistently pleasant in the moment and then glows in memory. Laure Calamy is wonderful.”

San Francisco Chronicle

“A breezy mid-summer delight. Effectively threads the needle between ‘Au Hasard Balthazar’ and ‘Legally Blonde’ (a phrase that I’ve waited my entire life to write).”


“Whimsical and soulful. One of the unexpected filmgoing delights of this summer.”
