C'est la vie!

Rated Parental Guidance ~ Runs 115 minutes

Dir.: Olivier Nakache/Eric Toledano, France/Canada

Jean-Pierre Bacri, Jean-Paul Rouve, Gilles Lellouche

Goya Award Nominee, Best European Film

A cantankerous French caterer has to try and create a fairytale wedding while relying on the most disorganized group of waiters, cooks, photographers and wedding singers in the history of holy matrimonies in C’est la Vie. This is an expertly assembled, tartly played and hugely enjoyable romp from directors Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache, whose Intouchables became a monster hit a few years ago. The duo’s latest is a sprawling and often hilarious ensemble comedy... Who else but the French king of withering put-downs and lackadaisical looks, Jean-Pierre Bacri, could have played the role of Max, an I’ve-seen-it-all caterer with added wedding-planner duties who’s been charged with organizing the momentous day of Pierre and his bride-to-be, Helena. His pragmatic motto is 'We need to adapt,' and there will be plenty of opportunities to do just that, as nothing goes as planned during either the preparations or the evening celebration itself... Like expert jugglers at a slapstick circus, the directors keep most of the characters and their faults and needs neatly in the air, with the rhythm hardly flagging and the tone buzzy and bustling throughout without becoming exhausting... This is a zippy and zinger-filled affair that offers carefully crafted character comedy, some hilarious slapstick and a cute love story or two as well as a few solid musical moments. Lellouche did his own singing and impresses, but it’s an unexpected Asian interlude that offers the film’s most quietly magical moment as the evening finally draws to a close." - Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter
