ah! the family...
21 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

Elie Chouraqui isn't a remarkable figure in the French cinema. After, a little convincing attempt in the comedy with "Paroles et Musique" (1984) and a failed incursion in the thriller with "Man on Fire" (1987) which made the object of an American remake in 2004, he chose to tell the story of a family with numerous members drowned in their sentimental problems. Through the presented topic, the director was inspired by Claude Lelouch's cinema (Chouraqui has earned his spurs as an assistant producer with the latter). As a matter of fact, "les marmottes" is especially worth for its band of actors. From Daniel Gélin to Virginie Ledoyen (it was one of her first major roles) through Gérard Lanvin, Chouraqui invited a concentrate of well-known actors coming from different generations. Their talent is sufficient to make up the characters' lack of depth and the director's impersonal style.

If you are a fan of Lelouch's and Sautet's cinema, that is to say if you are fond of sentimental movies, try this film. Otherwise, skip it.
