La Famille Bélier (Eric Lartigau)
Starring: Karin Viard, François Damiens, Eric Elmosnino, Louane Emera, Roxane Duran, Ilian Bergala, Luca Gelberg
Why I loved this film: I am not fleeing, I am flying. Understand it well, I am flying!
There are times when a film can hit close to home making it hard to review objectively because it has spoken to you in a very personal manner. That is the case with this French film.
I no longer live with my parents, but they are still everything to me. it is just that sometimes you have to make your own choices and live your own life.
Louane Emera has a beautiful voice and she really delivers a natural and touching performance in the lead role. I had no trouble caring for her character, so it really worked.
This film manages to be funny and sad at the same time, it even had me crying in the end.
The music also works extremely well. Karin Viard and François Damiens had great chemistry together and provided most of the comedy in the film.
La Famille Bélier is a very charming, feel-good movie full of funny and sincerely touching moments.
