I thought that "THE FIRST DAY OF THE REST OF YOUR LIFE" (aka "Le premier jour du reste de ta vie") was a thoroughly enjoyable movie it is a film that I would contemplate seeing again (and maybe again!) .
Well written and superbly directed by Remi Bezancon, "The first day " is a French film (with subtitles) telling the tale of a close knit family over a period of twelve years and especially focusing on five individual crucial days in particular over that period that changed the course of the families life for ever
I just liked everything about this film, the casting was superb, the music great, the way the story moved along was brisk and to the point and you felt at one with the family at some points I was very moved at others I laughed out loud there wasn't a bad thing to say about this movie ...
A special mention should go the actors playing the main Duval family members such good believable actors the Father - Robert (Jacques Gamblin), the Mother Marie-Jeanne (Zabou Breitman), their Daughter Fleur (Deborah Francois), and their two sons Raphael (Marc-Andre Grondin) and Albert (Pio Marmai) I'm sure that there will be many more good things to come from these actors (and the director) in the future
This film is a joy you share the hardships and the highlights and get totally immersed in the family and their circumstances
"THE FIRST DAY OF THE REST OF YOUR LIFE" is released on 20th November, and is thoroughly recommended
