Saw this at the London Film Festival and can't fully describe how ghastly the experience was.
A family reunion of a large family that made keeping up with them all difficult. Among them there was the mentally ill sister, patronisingly/grimly portrayed, the balding waster who despite seemingly having no money or purpose in life has a model Argentinian girlfriend - who conveniently provided the gratuitous nudity for the film and a host of others. Catherine Deneuve staggered through it all with an enigmatic look on her face that suggested she knew she was in a dire movie.
The plot, such as it was seemed to require that they all did unbelievable things and shouted at each other at full volume from the first frame to the last!
Staggered out with a headache - had I been on the end of the row I would have voted with my feet very early on.
