Movie Info

A fancy wedding brings out the worst in nearly everyone in this comedy from France. Vincent (Jermie Renier) and Berengere (Clemence Posey) are a handsome young couple from wealthy families who've decided to get married. The two are united in a small civil ceremony, but Berengere's grandmother Madeleine (Danielle Darrieux) insists on a church wedding, so several months later the couple are renewing their vows with a lavish event held at a chapel in the country. Madeleine insists that every detail be perfect, from the towering wedding cake to covering a statue in the church that she feels is in poor taste, but as the day wears on and the families and friends mingle, a few long-held secrets come to the surface and the "perfect day" falls far short of that benchmark. As their big day turns sour, Vincent and Berengere have to ask themselves if they're truly meant to be together for life after all despite their families. Piece Montee (aka The Wedding Cake) was the first feature film in a decade and a half from director Denys Granier-Deferre, who turned to television work after 1994's Coma. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Pièce montée (The Wedding Cake)

Another turmoils & secrets exposed in wedding ceremony & banquet. As expected, French so very much despise making screwball comedy; & as a result, quite a few potential punches were wasted because of bad-timing. So what remains perhaps is the decent dramatic parts leading by the two veteran French actors: Jean-Pierre Marielle & Danielle Darrieux, although the story itself is so corny & cliched already.
