"Pourquoi Pas Moi" ("Why Not Me?"), is such a lovely film which depicts a five young people who work together at a provincial French publishing cooperative. Three lesbians, a straight girl, and a most charming gay guy. Only one of the five is "out" with her family, and her activist mother decides to invite the five for a weekend at her country house at the same time as their parents.
This is the recipe for a very special get together, and the parents end up being just as interesting and as their offspring. The film develops into the kind of warm, witty farce, which the French seem to master so well.
The director, Stephane Giusti, is really talented and can be compared to Spain's Pedro Almodovar. A refreshing naivety, strong cast performances, and a surprisingly well-rounded act by Johnny Hallyday have made this film one of my all time favorites.
