C’EST LA VIE! [FRANCE], THU 14 FEBRUARY, 8PM

By January 28, 2018 Homepage, Season 20 Films

A relentlessly hilarious comedy about a wedding planner, it hits the ground running and barely takes a breath as wedding disaster after disaster unfold. Larger-than-life characters and laugh-out-loud set pieces make it a delight.

Max is a veteran wedding planner who is thinking about selling on his business. For now, however, there’s something more pressing to worry about: organising a lavish wedding in a 17th century chateau. It’s no small task: there’s dozens of people to manage, unreliable electricity, a last-minute musician change, and an increasingly demanding groom. Soon, things start going very wrong indeed. Can Max and his team sort everything out without the guests noticing?

Few films this year will provide as much sheer joy as this bubbly, charming and relentlessly hilarious jog around an arena we’re all familiar with. The ensemble cast has great fun with a dotty assortment of characters, every one of which is put to delightful use.Irish Independent ★★★★
