Happy Birthday / Fête de Famille (N/C 15+)

Family relations unravel to wonderfully excruciating comic and dramatic effect in this all-star ensemble piece from versatile French writer-director and here, co-star, Cédric Kahn. At a get-together one summer day to celebrate the mother’s 70th birthday we find her husband, their two sons, one with his wife and their two boys, the other with his new girlfriend, a movie camera to immortalise the event and an 18-year-old young woman who seems to have grown up there. Things seem peaceful and joyous until the unexpected arrival of the younger sister who had vanished four years earlier. She is greeted like the prodigal daughter but brings chaos in tow with her.

Cast Catherine Deneuve, Emmanuelle Bercot, Vincent Macaigne, Cédric Kahn, Laetitia Colombani
