# 04 : Just for the Rose (rental)
3 June 2019 | by lamegabyteSee all my reviews

This movie about a family reunion following a relative death is nor original nor captivating but there is improvement compared to the creators previous effort (the dreadful Une Vie A T'Attendre).

Geraldine has better things to do and she is cool playing a grumpy sister. Honestly she shows more skills than the long list of french oldies pals: Miou (x2) always badly playing the humble woman, La Deneuve always playing the old bourgeoisie, Lanvin always doing tons for nothing and Beart always playing la diva in spite of she is rather ugly Maybe it's because i skip too much scenes without Geraldine but it took me ages to understand that Lanvin (and not Brasseur) was her father and the one of her half brother I remember that Showgirls was labeled obscene but here a cabaret with nude girls, a queer, gays making love under Nice firework is hypocritically welcomed as inspired art ! Anyway, if i pushed it on the positive side, it's especially for Géraldine singing the song the Rose : with her sensibility and melodic voice, she finds a iconic scene for her long career. Proof that the director is not very inspired, i would have ended the movie with this very emotional sequence as the following minutes just don't add anything more
