Movie Info

A bourgeois family -- including domineering matriarch Madame Menard (Claire Maurier), rebellious daughter Betty (Agnès Jaoui), unambitious son Henri (Jean-Pierre Bacri) and his financially successful yet perpetually nervous brother, Philippe (Wladimir Yordanoff) -- assemble at a restaurant to celebrate the birthday of Yolande (Catherine Frot), Philippe's timid wife. As the evening wears on, bitter sibling rivalries and decades-long grudges and slowly reveal themselves.

Audience Reviews for Un Air De Famille ( Family Resemblances)

  • Mar 21, 2009
    Adapted from the play of the same name by Jean-Pierre Bacri and Agnès Jaoui (who both appear in the film) and it shows. It's not necessarily a bad thing though, just don't expect lots of action. The film basically takes place on one set, a restaurant playing host to a family gathering, so it's very much dialogue based. But the script is snappy and witty which keeps your interest in a film that otherwise probabaly wouldn't. Overall nice script and nice performances, especially Catherine Frot who was very funny and provided the majority of the humour in the film. The dancing to Patti Smith scene was also cute.
