Marriage Is Like a City Under Siege
25 August 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

On the day of the wedding of Johanna (Chloé Lambert) and Benjamin (Alexis Loret), her mother Gabrielle (Miou-Miou) has carefully planned all the details to welcome family and guests in her house in the country and have an unforgettable ceremony. Benjamin does not recall in the morning his bachelor party with his best man Alex (Jean Dujardin), who is in crisis in the relationship with his wife Valentine (Mathilde Seigner). She is having a secret affair with their friend, the wolf Dr. Hugo (Antoine Duléry), who is married with the sweet Micky (Lio). When Valentine tells Alex that she wants the divorce, he becomes upset and disturbed, drinking a lot. During the presentation of the travesty Roberta (Michel Dussarat), who had just arrived in the party to bring the wedding rings lost in the bachelor party in the cabaret where she works, Alex speeches disclosing a series of revelations in the relationships of his acquaintances and friends.

"Mariages!" approaches a serious theme, the relationship of a couple before and after wedding, with a subtle line between comedy and drama. The director and writer Valérie Guignabodet was able to present a delightful and deep discussion about the war of sexes using a magnificent cast, intelligent and witty lines and a wonderful music score. In spite of having many lead characters, all of them are very well developed along 100 minutes running time. Further, the excellent French actresses are strong characters and very gorgeous women, actually a pleasure for the eyes, and the smile of Lio is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen on the screen. In the end, love prevails and wins this pleasant war. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Casos e Casamentos" ("Affairs and Marriages")
