La Famille Belier (12)

Director Eric Lartigau. French Comedy/Drama/Music with English Subtitles


The Béliers are ordinary people: Rodolphe and Gigi are married, have two children and run their farm for a living. Ordinary people? Well, almost... since three of them, Dad, Mum and their son Quentin, are deaf. Which is not the case of the boy's big sister, Paula. And not only can she speak but her music teacher scouts her beautiful voice as well. He offers her to sit for the entrance exam of the Maîtrise de Radio France, a vocal elite choir in Paris. Her parents, who rely on her as their ears and mouth in the outside world, take the news badly. Paula, who hates the idea of betraying her parents and her brother, goes through a painful dilemma…

Starring Karin Viard, François Damiens, Eric Elmosnino, Louane Emera


Flick Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

A truly feel-good French film; funny and touching which couldn't fail to put a spring in your step. You'll be humming the tunes on your way home. Combining with a Coq au Vin supper gave extra appeal, but even without the edible treat there one could not fail to be delighted.

A little gem of a film - both funny and moving.

Absolutely captivating film about a contemporary French family. Full of wit, humour, emotion and sensitivity. One of the best received films that we have shown. Don't miss it.
