Just Retired / Joyeuse Retraite! (N/C 15+)
A sixty-something couple Marilou and Philippe are looking forward to their retirement in Portugal and freedom from the daily grind. Unfortunately, their daughter has decided to separate from her partner – and a whole host of demands suddenly start to mount up on the parental doorstep, casting asunder the best laid schemes for freedom and tranquillity in the sunshine. This is the first feature by Fabrice Bracq, who came to the Festival two years ago with his short A Whole World for a Little World. He co-wrote the script with Guillaume Clicquot de Mentque.
Cast Thierry Lhermitte, Michèle Laroque, Nicole Ferroni, Gérémy Crédeville and Michel Cymes
