Film: Les petits mouchoirs

*English to follow* À la suite d'un événement bouleversant, une bande de copains décide, malgré tout, de partir en vacances au bord de la mer comme chaque année. Leur amitié, leurs certitudes, leur culpabilité, leurs amours en seront ébranlées. Ils vont enfin devoir lever les "petits mouchoirs" qu'ils ont posés sur leurs secrets et leurs mensonges. Réalisé par Guillaume Canet (Ne le dis à personne) Avec François Cluzet, Marion Cotillard (Midnight in Paris, Inception), Benoît Magimel et Jean Dujardin (The Artist) Genre : Comédie, Drame Origine : France _________________________ From the prolific Cesar winning director who gave us Tell No One this intimate study of friendship and humanity brings together a truly exceptional ensemble cast; including the Academy and BAFTA award winning actress Marion Coutillard; and the Cesar ‘Best Actor‘ award winner Francois Cluzet. Walking the fine line between laughter and tears Canet directs some of France‘s most skillful performers to deliver startlingly intimate performances. As we learn of each character‘s flaws we also understand the bond between the friends, and recognise ourselves in them. Every year Max (Francois Cluzet), a successful restaurant owner, invites his family and friends to his beautiful beach house. This year, before they leave Paris, one of the group (Jean Dujardin) is seriously hurt in a traumatic accident. The friends decide to go ahead with their holiday, but the accident sets off a dramatic chain of reactions and emotional responses. The eagerly anticipated vacation leads each of the protagonists in turn to raise the veil that for years has covered their true feelings. Their relationships, convictions and friendships are sorely tested when finally forced to own up to the little white lies they have been telling each other. Directed by: Guillaume Canet (Tell No One) With: François Cluzet, Marion Cotillard and Benoît Magimel Genre : Comedy, Drama Origin : France French with English subtitles
