France
2017 / Comedy
Running time : 1h57
Directors : Olivier Nakache, Eric Toledano
Starring : Jean-Pierre Bacri, Jean-Paul Rouve, Gilles Lellouche, Vincent Macaigne, Hélène Vincent

The dynamic directorial duo behind the 2011 smash The Intouchables – Éric Toledano and Olivier Nakache – reunite for the Opening Night film C’est la vie!, in which a wedding threatens to erupt into an utter nightmare for the party’s cantankerous planner, Max.

Synopsis

Over a career spanning more than 30 years, Max Angély (Jean-Pierre Bacri, for whom the role was penned) has enjoyed a celebrated career as a caterer and event organiser. Today, it’s all hands on deck for Pierre and Héléna’s nuptials in a breathtaking 17th century French chateau.

As per usual, Max has everything precisely organised but, as the celebrations get underway, Murphy’s Law takes over, and his perfectly planned occasion risks disintegrating into a chaotic farce. Can Max and his team pull together to make Pierre and Héléna’s special day memorable for all the right reasons?
