Storyline

Every year, Max, a successful restaurant owner, and Véro, his eco-friendly wife invite a merry group of friends to their beautiful beach house to celebrate Antoine's birthday and kick-start the vacation. But, this year, before they all leave Paris, their buddy Ludo is hurt in a serious accident, which sets off a dramatic chain of reactions and emotional responses. The eagerly anticipated vacation leads each of the protagonists to raise the little veils that for years they have draped over what bothers and upsets them. Pretenses become increasingly hard to keep up. Until the moment when the truth finally catches up with them all... Written by The Film Catalogue

Funny, touching and distinguished
14 April 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Guillaume Canet is one of the most fine and admirable director in France. Les Petits Mouchoirs has one of the best ensemble casts of the year. An innuendo between drama and comedy is how Canet mastered the movie. From being delighted to borderline depressed the characters of the movie are as well written than played by the actors. Seeing a lot of unknown faces in the cast with actors such as Cotillard and Cluzet made me rationalize, but with effective and brilliant performances by Magimel, Dujardin and Bonneton you forget everything and enjoy the movie righteously. Their are little white mistakes in the screenplay now and then but on the whole with the director's admirable effort and the cast's resplendent role-play Les Petits Mouchoirs is a pleasant movie.
