The Verneuils are Catholic. They are also a well-off, well-educated , well-intentioned, well-thought of couple. Everything would be for the best in the best of worlds if three of their daughters had not married three young men... of different religions and origins. So, the day their fourth girl tells them that she is going to marry a Catholic they are on cloud nine...Written by
I imagine you have to be a middle class French to fully enjoy the dialog and the rhythm of this comedy but I have difficulties to understand that one cannot enjoy at least the clichés and the excessiveness of the "soooo" French characters. The four daughters are the same age, looking like each other,they are not twins or triplets, nevertheless they behave the same. They have married men of different culture and education not because they are in opposition with their parents' pattern just because it happens! One can admit the scenario is weak and the situation just caricature but I can testify to anyone that it is far below reality! I'm French I have three daughters in law one is Japanese, one is Moldavian and the third one is Chinese, diversity may create some tension. This film is the "Rabbi Jacob" of year 2014 not more than that but as real as that and I'm happy it will have a great success.
