Françoise Fabian, Grégory Montel, and Aure Atika star in this warm-hearted Parisian Jewish family drama. When patriarch Philippe dies, his wife Rose feels that her life is over. A chance dinner party however, re-ignites her joie-de-vivre much to the discomfort of her three loving but somewhat disfunctional children. Unsure how to deal with this new vivacious version of their mother, Rose’s childrens’ concerns can’t stop her celebrating life again. Honest, beautifully observed and laced with a treasure trove of Yiddish and Mizrahi songs, this is a life-affirming and accomplished debut feature from director Aurelie Sa’ada.
Runtime: 102 minutes
