Serial (Bad) Weddings (QU’EST-CE QU’ON A  FAIT AU BON  DIEU?)

Serial

 

“Avoid sensitive issues: Israel, the Dalai Lama, burqas. Not a word about France’s soccer team.”

 

 

Marie and Claude Verneuil are a conservative, respectable upper-class couple with four beautiful daughters. The eldest three have married a Jew, an Arab and an Asian man respectively, so when they discover their fourth daughter is engaged to a Catholic, they’re delighted… until they discover he is African. Claude decides to sabotage the wedding, finding an unlikely ally in his potential son-in-law’s father, who agrees with Claude in one thing only: what did they do to deserve this?

 

 

The most successful French-language film of 2014 was a huge hit across Europe, making over $169 million worldwide. An edgy, fearless comedy about race and family, it was awarded Best Screenplay at this year’s Lumiere Awards.
