Family business
13 April 2019 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

A kind of comedy drama involving a father in his fifties and his grown up son in his early twenties, both unemployed and under debts, who try desperately to make it financially. They stop at nothing, including swindle old people by door step phony wine sales or cooper steals on rail roads. This is also a social movie, focusing on the modern world issues. Touching characters whom we can easily recignize in. Kad Merad at his best.
