This is a light hearted movie despite its theme : we follow a middle aged man, married with children,through his everyday life (issues with his teenage son, conflicts with his loser brother played by Benjamin Biolay, his relationship with his father...) as he rediscovers by chance religion and catholic faith. The most interesting part is the reactions of both the man & its entourage to this phenomenon. While no masterpiece, it is a nice movie, the actors are good and the theme is quite original. You also get a few chuckles in between and the last meeting of the group, has truthful moments in it. I think the film asks interesting questions as to what religion may bring and how religious people may be viewed in french society and might interest both believers and non believers.
