“A good year beginning makes the whole year good”…
On the very first day of 2018, the French comedy about chaotic preparations of a chateau-set wedding “C’est la Vie!” from the directors of “The Intouchables” will be released in Minsk. You can see this incendiary and hilariously funny comedy about the hardships of the wedding planner at the height of the New Year holidays from 1 to 14 January at the Pioneer Cinema and from 4 to 17 January at the Falcon Club Cinema Boutique.
It’s not easy to plan a dream wedding. Best professionals gather in a luxury castle near Paris. Everything should be at the highest level, but…director’s brother-in-law finds out that the bride is actually his long-standing love and tries to win her heart right at the wedding, the wedding planner and the groom are arguing, the photographer seduces the groom's mother, the novice waiter will also not leave the guests without surprises. The atmosphere of the holiday, insane fun and touching romance are guaranteed!
French directors – Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano – have been making films for more than 20 years together; they already have a dozen co-shot films. Their first collaborative work is the short film “Day and Night” (1995) about the love story of one doctor. The directors became famous after release of “The Intouchables” – a film about friendship between aristocrat Philip confined to a wheelchair and the young dweller of the suburbs Driss, who was recently released from prison. The film won more than 30 prizes of world cinema awards, including the national one "Cesar" in the nomination for Best Actor.
The main role in “C'est la Vie!” was performed by the French actor Jean-Pierre Bacri, who also played in such films as “Edith” and Marcel” by Claude Lelouch, Luc Besson's “Subway”, Alain Resnais' “Same Old Song”. For the role in the last one Jean-Pierre Bacri received the César Award.
“C’est la Vie!” was the closing film of this year’s Toronto International Film Festival and received enthusiastic critics’ reviews: “this is an expertly assembled, tartly played and hugely enjoyable romp from directors Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache” (The Hollywood Reporter), “a classically-constructed ensemble comedy which follows proudly in the footsteps of the greats” (Screen Daily).
