About this event

Humour can be very particular to one country – what's funny in France can just puzzle other nations but Jon Davies, our French Film expert, hopes to amuse us with films he has found that never braved the channel crossing but are worth enjoying.

C'est La Vie

The dynamic duo behind the 2011 smash Intouchables – Éric Toledano and Olivier Nakache – reunite for this new comedy in which a wedding threatens to erupt into an utter nightmare for the party’s cantankerous planner. A deliciously deadpan comic soufflé.

Max has run a catering company for 30 years. Today is Pierre and Helena’s big day. As usual, Max recruited his team of waiting staff, cooks, and dishwashers. He advised the couple on a photographer, reserved the band: everything to make the party a success. From the preparations to daybreak, we get a behind-the-scenes look at a wedding party through the eyes of the people working on it. They will all have to count on their one common quality: they know what it means to throw a good party.

This programme includes the Talk at 1pm-2pm and a Screening at 2.30pm. To book for the film only on this day, please contact the Box Office.
