Vincent is about to become a father. At a meeting with childhood friends he announces the name for his future son. The scandalous name ignites a discussion which surfaces unpleasant matters from the past of the group.
Alexandre de La Patellière,
A French public servant from Provence is banished to the far North. Strongly prejudiced against this cold and inhospitable place, he leaves his family behind to relocate temporarily there, with the firm intent to quickly come back.
Luis enjoys the liberty of being single. He has a smell for perfumes and thus money. However, his 5 sisters and mom believe that at 43, he should be looking for a wife, not one-night stands. They find candi/dates. He hires a "fiancée".
Claude and Marie Verneuil face a new crisis. The four spouses of their daughters, David, Rachid, Chao and Charles decided to leave France for various reasons. Here they are imagining their lives elsewhere.

The Béliers are ordinary people: Rodolphe and Gigi are married, have two children and run their farm for a living. Ordinary people? Well, almost... since three of them, Dad, Mum and their son Quentin, are deaf. Which is not the case of the boy's big sister, Paula. And not only can she speak but her music teacher scouts her beautiful voice as well. He offers her to sit for the entrance exam of the Maîtrise de Radio France, a vocal elite choir in Paris. Her parents, who rely on her as their ears and mouth in the outside world, take the news badly. Paula, who hates the idea of betraying her parents and her brother, goes through a painful dilemma...Written by
The song "Je vole" was written by Michel Sardou as a kind of suicide note of a teenager [as he explained in his autobiography]. In the movie the lyrics were slightly changed (except the refrain) to fit to the theme of the movie, which is leaving home for a career, not suicide. See more »
After the cast list, there are photos of Rodolphe as Mayor with Gigi, of Thomasson's wedding to Mademoiselle Dos Santos, and of Paula and Gabriel in Paris. See more »
We were darling and I went out last night to the movies to see "Bélier Family" One we talked a lot, especially heard he must go see it! The first reason for my desire to see this film is that Damiens Francois there take a role. This is a player that I discovered it a few years now and I find him absolutely fabulous in particular in "Heartbreaker" with Vanessa Paradis and Romain Duris. Eric Elmosnino and Karin Viard are remarkable too, distribution is very perfect. The story of this young girl "Paula Bélier" embodied by Louane Emera is absolutely moving. If you decided to go see this movie you will be unable to hold your tears, this film was great for my darling and me
