Lola, a divorce lawyer, has two brothers: Benoit, owner of an optical shop, and Pierre, who works demolishing buildings. Everything seems to keep these three siblings apart, although, in reality, they are inseparable. In fact, they usually gather in the cemetery next to the grave of their deceased parents. Together, they will share the ups and downs of their respective lives: Benoit's wedding, marriage crisis and fatherhood; Lola's relationship with Zoher, a former client of her, and Pierre's labor problems.Written by
"Lola and her brothers(Lola et ses frères)" discuss rather difficult topics such as unemployment, mourning or loneliness. Jean-Paul Rouve and David Foenkinos, however, wanted to sprinkle them with little surreal moments (like the old man's character in the cemetery). See more »
In the shot of the destruction of the two towers, supposed to happen in Angoulême like the rest of the movie, the skyline of Lyon (which is easily recognizable with its famous 'Crayon' building), is visible in the background. Lyon is more than 250 miles east of Angoulême. See more »
A beautiful film about family. Amusing and sad and touching, presenting portraits of ordinary people in so familiar situations, preserving the mark of David Foenkinos style and proposing just a beautiful performance of Ludivine Sagnier. Two brothers and their wise , mother - like sister, kids and crisis, charming build of secondary characters -Ramzy Bedia and. Gabriel Naccache as good examples, fine humor and nice solutions, in part, for their hig unrealism. Short, just a profound nice film.
