Irish Film Institute -C’EST LA VIE!


Director: Olivier Nakache, Éric Toledano

117 mins; France-Belgium; 2017; Digital; Subtitled

This film was released 31st August 2018, and is no longer screening.

The latest effervescent comedy from the French directing duo of Olivier Nakache and Éric Toledano (The Intouchables) depicts one sprawling, increasingly fraught day in the life of Max (Jean-Pierre Bacri), a world-weary Parisian wedding caterer whose latest over-planned assignment in a 17th century château may prove to be his undoing.

The many characters and narrative threads in this breathlessly paced film overlap and collide to delightful comedic effect.
