Un secret
18 April 2011 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

The wedding of Vincent and Berenger does not begin well. For starters, the fabulous cake for the reception falls apart as the butler of the château, and one of the caterers is taking down a flight of stairs falls. The cream puffs are carefully picked up from the floor an arranged as though nothing happened.

The bride comes from a bourgeois family, presided by Maddie, an old lady with a secret in her heart. The wedding, to be performed at the local church, by father Victor, proves to be not the classic marriage that has been planned. For starters, the priest is a crusty old man that does not tolerate pretentious people. It is clear he is turned off by what he is going to do.

As Berenger arrives at the church, she notices Vincent's young niece, who is clearly autistic. Afraid of perhaps produce a child like her, Berenger is clearly upset. The church ceremony does not go well because father Victor sees Maddie in the audience. It becomes clear he knows her, but nothing prepares the viewer for the fact that he is part of the secret Maddie reveals toward the end of the wedding banquet.

The film was directed by Denys Granier-Deferre, who contributed to the screenplay. The film is not in the same league as other, better made films about the same subject. Robert Altman's "A Wedding", comes to mind. It is a lavish production whose creators appear not to have worried about the cost. It is a pleasant comedy, in a conventional sort of way.

Our only interest in watching was to see Danielle Darrieux, one of the most endearing actresses of the French cinema. She does not disappoint; her sparkling eyes show a woman whose passion for acting rates highly with her. On hand also is veteran actor Jean-Pierre Marielle playing Victor. The groom is played by Jeremie Renier who has distinguished himself by his work with the Dardenne brothers. Clemence Poesy makes a beautiful bride. Aurore Clement, Julie Gayet, Julie Depardieu, are seen in the large cast in supporting roles. De The production was beautifully photographed by Aurelien Devaux.
