Movie Info

This French drama from acclaimed director Anne Fontaine highlights a wealthy, upper-class family's involvement with each other after their father figure passes away. Versailles gynecologist Jean-Luc (Charles Berling) is first seen treating an age-fearing patient as he receives word of his father's death. Told in teasing flashback style, the characters relate to their dead father as if he were still alive. The father, Maurice (Michel Bouquet), reappears to expose the family's insecurities, especially in courting Jean-Luc's classy, beautiful wife Isa (Natacha Regnier), who is charmed by him, and she begins to confess her innermost thoughts, such as her desire for children and her husband's affair with his Syrian assistant (Amira Casar). Patrick (Stephane Guillon), Jean-Luc's younger brother, also frets his career as a stand-up comedian while acting as Jean-Luc's chauffeur. But the most rigid conflict exists between Jean-Luc and Maurice, the latter once also a successful physician, who threw it all away to work in a distant country. Jean-Luc's rejection begins to grate on him, but his bourgeois existence prevents him from making any changes to it. The film also features Hubert Kounde, Francois Berleand, and Karole Rocher in supporting roles.
