Storyline

Adopted by a well-off Swiss couple with slightly older son and daughter, Vinh never cut off links with his country of origin. Postcards from the adoptive family regularly conveyed to Vinh's mother in Vietnam reassurance about the warmth and nurturing environment that she always wished for her boy. Now grown up, Vinh is getting married; after so many years, the wedding is the ideal opportunity for his mother, accompanied by uncle Dac, to visit the adoptive family. Nothing would cause a greater consternation among its members. The parents underwent a less than amicable divorce, the father is bankrupt, the sister estranged, the elder brother brooding, the model family broken up. What can be done to prevent the unavoidable and profound disappointment of Vinh's mother and uncle Dac when they discover the fiasco? Written by Eduardo Casais <casaise@acm.org>

Bitter-sweet and powerful comedy
20 December 2007 | by jgd-6See all my reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed this little film, which manages to draw on your emotional reserves and still makes you laugh. Perfect acting, especially Jean-Luc Bideau, Aurore Clément and the very subdued Vietnamese mother. The young actress playing the sister (Delphine Chuillot?) was good too but her part was limited. Watch her in the future! She's got Charlotte Rampling's eyes... Anyway, I will definitely follow the career and musings of this director! Jean-Stéphane Bron? I'd never heard of him before, but... I recommend this title and will start digging for others here and at my local video store!
