As well as ensuring that the film avoids the cloying sweetness of Hollywood's seasonal offering, Love the Coopers, the Beliers' idiosyncrasies strike a gently subversive note.
[The Belier Family] has enormous charm and humour, a real sense of warmth within the family, and a knockout finale which, of course, involves Paula's singing.
[Viard and Damiens] manage to project a lot of warmth despite the fact both have no spoken dialogue and their characters tend to be extremely direct.
The beauty of the otherwise formulaic La Famille Belier is the way this affable crowdpleaser manages to twist its overplayed setup.
A canny cast earn any final-reel tears honestly: the ever-ebullient Viard proves even more expressive without spoken dialogue, and Eric Elmosnino lends wry support as the choirmaster.
A light and agreeable movie; it's not particularly memorable, but it's got nothing offensively bad about it either. [Full review in Spanish]
Between La Famille Beliér's frequent juvenile jokes, redundant subplots and comically misguided performances, it seriously needed some work before going into production.
An impressively handled if conventional comedy-drama.
More interested in appeasing an older audience that already treats the condition as a wondrous curiosity, rather than moving them even an inch outside their comfort zone.
The heartening story of a young girl realising her singing talent is tempered by the borderline offensive portrayal of her deaf and mute farming parents ... as a pair of clowns that serve as the butt of most jokes.
The humour - there are quite a few good one-liners - and the warmth, the charm, the pathos, and the topic make it a pleasure.
The careful handling here ensures that we're never invited to laugh at the protagonists' supposed 'disability', making this more about everyone's struggle to be heard, whether they're deaf or not.
An interesting story showing how deaf people cope with life and everyday situations and experiences we take for granted. Fantastic performances showing both musical and acting talent make this a very good film.
