CLOSING NIGHT PARTY
One screening only!
The 28th Alliance Française French Film Festival in Melbourne will close this year on the 30 th of March with its big Closing Night at The Astor Theatre(*), screening:
A BUN IN THE OVEn
2015 / Comedy
Running time : 1h39
Director : Nadege Loiseau
Starring : Karin Viard, Philippe Rebbot, Hélène Vincent, Manon Kneuse
What better way to finish a festival than with the delivery of a brand new bundle of joy? Unfortunately, this is not quite how Nicole (comedy star Karin Viard, The Bélier Family, AF FFF15) would view the situation in writer-director Nadège Loiseau’s uproarious and emotive debut feature about a reluctant 49-year-old mother-to-be.
In a household already bursting at the seams, the almost menopausal Nicole is completely swamped with duties, barely managing to keep everything from falling apart. Comprising the four generations under her roof is her eccentric elderly mother Mamilette and her daughter Arielle along with Arielle’s pesky Canadian partner Toussaint and their 6-year-old daughter Zoé. Finishing off the family tree is Nicole’s husband Jean-Pierre, an unemployed ex-gymnast.
Just when life couldn’t get any more hectic, Nicole finds out that she is pregnant.
Viard and this wonderfully harmonious supporting cast deliver scene after scene of pure boisterous comedic gold, as Nicole fumbles through the barrage of demands that come with pregnancy, and learns for the very first time how to sort out her own life.
