Manic and earnest, the meticulously constructed plot whips by at a breakneck pace.

C'est La Vie! starts a little tentatively... But once the film hits its straps - which it definitely does - C'est La Vie! becomes a likeable, witty and occasionally downright poignant and insightful little gem.

Unfortunately, the manic mix-ups, tangled love-lives, slapstick shenanigans and myriad misunderstandings in C'est La Vie often fall flat.

A Robert Altman-esque roam, encompassing everyone from Max's employees to some truly garrulous guests, C'est La Vie!... is French farce baked to perfection.
