Join us for this very special Bastille Day preview of C'est la vie!, which recently premiered to acclaim at EIFF.
Co-directors and screenwriters Éric Toledano and Olivier Nakache gained appropriate attention thanks to their sublime film Intouchables (2011).
With C’est la vie! they tell the delightfully sprawling story of a day in the life of an ageing Parisian wedding caterer (beautifully played by Jean-Pierre Bacri) driven to frustrated distraction as a complex wedding in a 17th-century chateau unravels.
This is a sophisticated ensemble comedy with a broad multi-ethnic and multi-generational cast, all driven by a breezy score (just like Intouchables) that delivers real, irreverent pleasure.
