Storyline

Lola, a divorce lawyer, has two brothers: Benoit, owner of an optical shop, and Pierre, who works demolishing buildings. Everything seems to keep these three siblings apart, although, in reality, they are inseparable. In fact, they usually gather in the cemetery next to the grave of their deceased parents. Together, they will share the ups and downs of their respective lives: Benoit's wedding, marriage crisis and fatherhood; Lola's relationship with Zoher, a former client of her, and Pierre's labor problems.

The brothers ,yes! Lola ,no!
7 December 2019 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

Lola (see the prologue) has always been a second mom to her two brothers who are probably older than her. These two siblings are played by the director (Jean -Paul Rouve )and Jose Garcia ;both outshine the bland couple Ludivine Sagnier/Ramzy Bedia.

The former is an optician whose problems with English cause him problems with the color of the spectacles : his customers have little choice: peas-green, spinach-green ,green bordering on purple(?) The latter is dismissed and he tells his posh boss a few home truths before leaving his office.His scenes with his son could have been cut ,the movie would not have suffered for it,but every time he meets his sibling,there's a wonderful chemistry between them :their reaction to sister's great event is memorable :they pull a disapproving face when they learn she is in love (and they know she will not be only theirs) :the have excuses : the new boyfriend epitomizes the French feel good scene : highly educated, clever, eating with chopsticks ,in a nutshell :perfect .And Lola is not better :a lawyer (in the" feel good" French movie,this is par excellence THE woman's job) ,who laughs up her sleeve when a crude woman (from the working class) insults her husband ,a scene which sounds distastefully bourgeois .

We'd love to see both brothers teach a thing or two to this self-satisfied self-assured buck.

But we can relate to them ,because ,unlike their brilliant sister ,they are like us : sometimes brooding,sometimes playful ,often mischievous ,together through life .Stand by them.

All the songs are in French! bravo!
