Our take

From the multitalented writer-director Julie Delpy (2 Days in Paris), this witty, insightful comedy-drama is a delight: a lively period piece charting the chaos that comes with an extended family gathering. Two legends of French cinema, Emmanuelle Riva and Bernadette Lafont, star alongside Delpy.
