Storyline

Alessandro teaches musicology at the university of Strasbourg. He is also a volunteer reader in hospitals. He shares his apartment with his daughter, 15-year-old Irina, and his anarchist brother Luigi. Life is not always rosy at Alessandro's for three main reasons : he is a widower and has never really recovered from the death of his young wife ; his brother is some kind of parasite who refuses to sell his paintings to capitalist speculators and so to contribute to the cost of the household ; Irina, whom he has raised alone since she was five months old and always felt close to, is rapidly changing from little girl to teenager and wishes to be treated as such. One day, Florence, a beautiful young woman, gets into Alessandro's life. Will he eventually take his chances with her? And will he manage to stop stifling Irina? And will he finally get on with Luigi? Written by Guy Bellinger

Superb acting, skilfully produced film with an excellent musical score
8 June 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is my first movie review, written because I was disappointed with the low ratings by IMDb viewers. It would be a shame if other viewers were dissuaded from seeing this totally absorbing, fast - paced, funny film. "Tous Les Soleils" has many defining moments where the lead actor is presented by the director in multiple interactions with his daughter, live-in brother, friends, colleagues and yes, his dead wife. We join him in his daily routines over what seem to be a few summer months, watching his blunders, confusion, passion and triumphs. I was captivated from the opening scene with this young widower, competently and joyfully winding his way through city streets on his moped. His teaching episodes with his classes of students are joyful, animated demonstrations of his love for baroque music. I was touched by his work with hospital patients and bonded with him in his single parent travails with his teenage daughter. The film has so many attractive, convincing characters to complement the always - engaging lead actors. The backdrop of Strasbourg (we found out later in the film) and countryside is magical and the musical score is perfect. I laughed out loud at the various schemes of the zany brother to protest the "system", including his self-exile in his brother's apartment until the fall of Berlusconi in their native Italy. The combined efforts of our widower's brother, daughter and friends to "match make" are audaciously funny. We share our lead actor's reactions to his daughter growing up, with the transformation of her taking the role of adult in the father - daughter relationship. Yes, ten out of ten is my rating. "Tous Les Soleils" is a superbly acted and produced film.
