Storyline

Zef's dear wife dies in an accident just as Roni, his wealthy brother, marries his daughter. When the widower arrives with the coffin containing his wife's body right in the middle of the preparations for the wedding feast, he naturally casts a chill. The tensions between the two brothers who have diametrically opposed characters soon aggravate. All is a pretext for conflict, occupations, women, religion... Written by Guy Bellinger

Lou de Laage
22 April 2013 | by fookooSee all my reviews

Lou de Laage is potentially the next great film actress from France. Seen at ColCoa 2013, Des Gens qui s'embarassent is a break out performance for her after Jappeloup. The director of Des Gens qui s'embarassent, Daniele Thompson, obviously saw something in this young actress because she is the center of attention and has to carry the film. The camera loves her and she is able to take control of the screen, projecting extremely well with the feeling that she is not acting. She is certainly gifted with the talent and looks that can take her to the top. All she needs to do is to learn English, let great directors find her, and take Hollywood by storm.
