There's little originality.
Elegantly folds together multiple storylines ... into a confection that is ultimately better because of its bitterness.
Sparklingly acted by a fine ensemble cast.
The tone is light, the Michel Legrand music is high in calories and the result is a very handsome, well-appointed soap opera.
Thompson keeps her focus (and ours) on the actors, most of whom have never been as luminous as they are here.
Never quite escapes from the familiar melodramatic cavern in which it becomes trapped.
Christmas with a dysfunctional family, French-style.
A very staid drama with no sense of irony.
Takes familiar material and gives it texture, subtlety and refinement.
A French film about the terrible fallout from some family secrets.
This sort of Home for the Holidays fare is hardly new, and most of us get enough of it in real life.
A fine achievement along the lines of Jodie Foster's Home for the Holidays.
What better time to find out you have a brother you never knew about, than the holidays!
This is a humorous French movie about a family that discovers secrets about each other and about themselves just in time for Christmas.
I thought it was strange that all the Christmas songs were in English though.
The three daughters Louba, Sonia, and Milla all lead different lives but come to understand each other more after their step-father dies.
Louba sings at a Russian restaurant (beautifully by the way) and is having an affair with a married man for the past 12 years.
Sonia is rich and snobby and while everyone thinks she is perfect, her marriage is falling apart with its own affair.
Milla is the youngest and the most rebellious. She says she tends to scare men off when she just wants to be loved.
This movie is really funny.
Even though their father has slept with a lot of women and produced a son he thought he kept hidden from his family, he still wants a happy Christmas.
If you like movies about dysfunctional families and want to watch one that is more comedy than drama, you might enjoy this one!
