FRENCH CINE CLUB

Serial (Bad) Weddings

The Alliance Française of Port Elizabeth invite you for the new session the French Cine Club. On the programme, it’s the french comedy movie by Philippe De Chauveron : Qu’est ce qu’on a fait au bon dieu ? / Serial (Bad) Weddings

Synospsis :
Claude Verneuil, a Gaullist notary, and his wife Marie, a Catholic bourgeois from Chinon, are parents of four daughters: Isabelle, Odile, Ségolène, and Laure. The three eldest are already married to men, each one of a different religion and a different ethnic origin: Isabelle married Rashid Ben Assem, an Algerian Muslim lawyer, Odile married David Benichou, a Sephardi Jew entrepreneur, and Ségolène married Chao Ling, a Han Chinese banker who is open to all religious beliefs. The Verneuils pretend to accept their sons-in-law but have had a hard time hiding their discomfort at accepting people into the family from outside the community. A family meeting is spoiled because of the awkwardness and clichés about race and religion, expressed as much by the father as by the sons-in-law, who even exchange insulting views to and about each other.
