The Bélier Family

La famille Bélier

Directed by Eric Lartigau
France, Belgium, 2014


In the Bélier family, everyone is deaf, except dutiful 16-year-old Paula. She acts as an indispensable interpreter for her parents and brother, especially in the running of the dairy farm. When she impulsively joins the school’s choir, it’s not long before her music teacher discovers her talent.
