Editorial Reviews

Following a motorcycle accident that leaves a charismatic member (Jean Dujardin, The Artist) of their group in an intensive care unit, a close-knit circle of friends embark on their annual summer getaway to Cap Ferrat in the southwest of France. Staying at wealthy family man Max's (Fran‡ois Cluzet, Tell No One, The Intouchables)spacious vacation home, the sunny beachside idyll quickly becomes the backdrop of heated tensions and outbursts among the old acquaintances as the little white lies just beneath the surface of their relationships reach a boiling point. Featuring an all-star cast including Marion Cotillard (The Dark Knight Rises, La Vie en Rose) and Gilles Lellouche (Point Blank, Mesrine) and a soundtrack of classic hit songs, director Guillaume Canet's follow-up to his smash-hit Tell No One is a touching, poignant, and inspiring dramatic comedy about owning up to the truths that define a life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Similar to a French Big Chill March 3, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
Since I have an all-region DVD player, I was able to enjoy this exquisite movie about a group of friends who decide to take a previously planned vacation after one of them (played by Academy Award winner, Jean Dujardin) gets seriously injured in an accident. This character-driven movie deals with lies we tell ourselves, lies we tell others to keep face, and the consequences, positive or negative, for sometimes telling the truth. At the heart of it is the acceptance of friends for who they are, with their human frailties exposed. The ending, like the coming together of a complex tapestry, is extremely powerful and emotionally moving. There's not a false note in the fine ensemble cast. I sincerely hope that a Region 1 version will be released in the near future for North American consumption.

Format:DVD
Guillaume Canet creates films (Tell No One, Whatever You Say, J'peux pas dormir..., Je taim) that though they are about love, loss and life, they probe more deeply into the human condition than the glossy entertaining surface can conceal. In the end all of his films demand that the viewer connects to his concept of the flow of life and death and those aspects of living that make a difference. Les petits mouchoirs AKA Little White Lies magnifies these attributes. The story is so conversationally written that for a while it is difficult to pull together where the film is going, but by the end of the film the audience is so choked by the discoveries revealed that tears and a stunned afterburn are inevitable.

Every year, Max Cantara (François Cluzet), a successful restaurant owner, and Véronique (Valérie Bonneton), his eco-friendly wife invite a their close-knit circle of friends to their beautiful Cap Ferrat beach house near Bordeaux to celebrate the birthday of Antoine (Laurent Lafitte) and kick-start the vacation. But, this year, before they all leave Paris, their mutual friend Ludo (Jean Dujardin) is hurt in a serious motocycle accident, ends up the ICU and as the doctors say nothing can be done to change things for at least two weeks, the friends all proceed with their plans for vacation: no one stays behind to be supportive of Ludo, not even his apparent love partner Marie (Marion Cotillard). This sets off a dramatic chain of reactions and emotional responses. The eagerly anticipated vacation leads each of the protagonists to raise the little veils that for years they have draped over what bothers and upsets them. Pretenses become increasingly hard to keep up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great portrait of life September 20, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
I loved this film! Saw it at the Reed College French House. The actors are so expressive and beautiful. I hope they release this for the US. It finds a balance between art and realism and feeling empty and feeling alive. Fantastic soundtrack and a great intro to French cinema. I DESPERATELY WANT TO SEE IT AGAIN AND HOPE TO SEE IT ON NETFLIX OR ITUNES OR ON DVD FOR OUR REGION :)

5.0 out of 5 stars The Meaning of Friendship February 16, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Les petits mouchoirs (Little White Lies) in an accurate and unfortunately sad representation of the life of friends who, despite one of theirs being in critical care following a motorcycle accident, go on with their vacation, abandoning said friend in Paris. Characters are well depicted and the cast of actors impressive. The film is somehow reminiscent of an American classic, The Big Chill. Even though one man is in the hospital fighting for his life, each character continues on with every day life and its insignificance. Characters impersonate archetypes: the rich guy, full of himself and always stressed and rude, the unhappy womanizer, the ambiguous bisexual good looking seductress, etc... surrounded by children who see their parents drink, smoke, have fun, argue, and so on. The decor is nice: the Atlantic coast of France, near the famous dune of Pila. Only one person is genuine: Jean-Louis, the local fisherman, who at the end of the film will break the bad news to the bunch, and make them realize how selfish their behavior is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Movie March 28, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
When I was in France a couple of years ago and saw this movie, I knew I had to have it! When it finally became available in the US, I was ecstatic! This movie has so many themes and I notice something different about it each time. I am sure that I will be watching it for years to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun movie March 3, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
My husband and I really enjoyed this French movie with English subtitles. It has been compared to The Big Chill, and I think the comparison is apt. We enjoyed the humor, the complexity of the characters, and the soundtrack. I highly recommend this film for people who like foreign movies.
