Alliance Française French Film Festival 2018 presents
C’EST LA VIE! (LE SENS DE LA FÊTE)
Join us to celebrate the 2018 Alliance Française French Film Festival Opening Night* with our screening of this new hilarious comedy by dynamic duo Olivier Nakache and Éric Toledano (The Intouchables, Those Happy Days).
Over a career spanning more than 30 years, Max Angély (Jean-Pierre Bacri, for whom the role was penned) has enjoyed a celebrated career as a caterer and event organiser. Today, it’s all hands on deck for Pierre and Héléna’s nuptials in a breathtaking 17th century French chateau. As per usual, Max has everything precisely organised but, as the celebrations get underway, Murphy’s Law takes over, and his perfectly planned occasion risks disintegrating into a chaotic farce. Can Max and his team pull together to make Pierre and Héléna’s special day memorable for all the right reasons?
C’est la Vie! is a carefully crafted rom-com loaded with witty zingers. A hypnotically jazzy soundtrack and top-notch ensemble cast seals the deal on what is shameless fun from go to whoa.
