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.Read more ›
The film is long and I think it could have been cut. I did have a hard time with the American pop music which apparently sounds different to French ears than to mine. "Hang on Sloopy" appeared at what seemed like an absurd moment and "My Way" at the funeral?!
As others have noted this is in the tradition of" The Big Chill" and other ensemble pieces where a group of old friends gets together and interesting stuff happens. I agree with the reviewer who said this isn't the best of this genre but it isn't the worst either. And as most everyone agreed, the cast is superb and makes sitting through the boring parts tolerable. Marion Cotillard is particularly wonderful.
It's a good summer film if you can't go to the beach youself. A bottle of Bordeaux will help.

I usually balk at long movies, but this one flew by because so much was going on all throughout the film. In fact, I didn't want it to end, but it did and when it did... Read morePublished 5 months ago by Ruby
Little White Lies is a French The Big Chill. The story arc is very similar; the director puts little hints here and there. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Dan Lebryk
