SCREENING SPONSORED BY

The Cellier family is an ordinary family: its members are completely insane. Mady, the mother, in her sixties, spends her time criticizing her two daughters and her retired husband. Henry, ex-captain of industry, seems to have acquired bizarre habits since his retirement. Antoine, the older brother, is incapable of managing a company and runs from one bankruptcy to another. Alice, the sister, compulsively paints depressive and toxicomanic madonnas. Annabelle, a nurse in the intensive care unit, desperately tries to save her kin in predicting their future in the cards. One night Alice, in one of her depressive evenings, had met Jacques, a solitary and disillusioned cop “by chance”. This event will change their lives for better or for worse.

           QUOTES             Cécile Telerman | Director

I wanted to make a film about a family and its conflicts. I wanted to tell a story of a family, but above all, its transmissions, meaning: What do we receive from our parents? How does this heritage condition our existence, how do we select its values? And to avoid writing a family saga, I chose to make the story a little complicated.
