Le Sens de la Fête

Éric Toledano, Oliver Nakache, France, 117m
French with English subtitles

Nominated for 10 Césars, including Best Film, this deliciously deadpan comic soufflé from the directors of “The Untouchables” concerns the behind-the-scenes planning of an elaborate wedding. Max (Jean-Pierre Bacri) is a veteran event coordinator who thinks he’s seen it all—until he must pull off a spectacular wedding at an 18th-century chateau (complete with waitstaff in powdered wigs). Between an epic catering mishap, an egomaniac groomsman, and a photographer who’s more interested in his Tinder matches than in taking pictures, it’s sure to be a night to remember… Like Altman with a featherlight, Gallic touch, “C’est la vie!” expertly juggles a sparkling ensemble cast including Vincent Macaigne, Gilles Lellouche, and Suzanne Clement.
