Movie Info

One might assume that the original title of this French production was C'est La Vie . Wrong: the film was initially released as La Baule-les-Pins, then distributed to English speaking countries under a more "understandable" French cognomen. The film is set during a deceptively idyllic summer. Two young girls are fascinated bystanders as their parents' marriage dissolves and their mother takes up with a younger man. What might have been material for tear-stained drama in an American film is treated with perceptive humor in C'est La Vie. Director Diane Kurys cowrote the screenplay with Alain Le Henry.more

Audience Reviews for C'est La Vie

AVOID THIS FILM!!! Teaches small kids to smoke tobacco, a total NO-NO. Should've been censored here in the States.
