Storyline

Three French sisters have their lives interrupted and their relationship called into question when their father returns to visit 15 years after having abandoned them and their now-deceased mother. Each responds differently to his return according to how her character evolved from her relation with him and his unexpected departure. They eventually realize, though, that the somewhat elderly father is quickly losing his memory and his ability to function, and the youngest daughter's decision to accept him again while she can ends up permanently changing her family ties with her sisters. Written by Joel Mann <jmann@virtu.sar.usf.edu>

Hard to take at first, but after a while it becomes fascinating stuff
29 August 2004 | by (Amsterdam, Holland) – See all my reviews

I really enjoy watching French Film,not only because my mother is French but also because the French make great films.

TOUT VA BIEN, ON S'EN VA is another great French film although I didn't think it would be one at first glance.The film is very slow and not much happens,but after a while(say 20 minutes)you get into the system of the film and then it's a joy to watch.

The acting is what makes this film.French acting canon Michel Piccoli puts down a remarkable performance as the demented father(Louis) of three sisters played by Miou Miou(great name),Sandrine Kiberlain(stunning,especially when she gets mad)and the young Natacha Regnier.Each player is doing a superb job with Piccoli as the stand out.

The comic touch is provided by Laurent Poitrenaux who doesn't know the difference between left and right.This isn't always good because the film itself isn't funny at all,but we'll forgive him.

The scenes in which Louis is trying to remember his girl's addresses or names is really heartbreaking as are the scenes in which he quarrels with them.The director one time uses a "Brief Encounter" trick to show the desperation of Louis.The image behind him turns completely black.Although he plays a dark character it is never possible to really hate him.

A first class acting film that takes time to adjust. 8/10
