La Famille Bélier (12A) – Bridport Electric Palace

La Famille Bélier (12A)
Director: Eric Lartigau
Starring: Karin Viard, Francois Damiens.
Comedy Drama Music | France 2014
1 hr 46 mins | Subtitles

A girl who lives with her deaf parents realises she has a gift for singing.‘Some of the most original ideas in film making come via the vibrant French industry. Hollywood loves to absorb these new ideas, translate them into English, re name them then market the film as something newly concocted; The Birdcage and Cousins for example’. Chris Greenwood.

Written in 2016 this prophecy came of age in the 2022 Oscar winner CODA. Both are crowd pleasers and equally enjoyable.
