Claude Verneuil (Christian Clavier) and his wife Marie (Chantal Lauby) are a conservative Catholic couple who consider themselves open-minded. However, their tolerance is sorely tested when three of their daughters decide to successively marry men who are Asian (Chao Ling), Arabic (Rachid Benassem) and Jewish (David Benichou). Their last hope for a traditional marriage is dashed when their youngest daughter Laure (Elodie Fontan) announces her upcoming wedding to Charles (Noom Diawara), who is of African descent. When the groom’s parents roll into town from the Ivory Coast, mayhem ensues and everyone is forced to reassess their beliefs and attitudes.

A box office sensation in France, SERIAL (BAD) WEDDINGS is an unabashedly politically incorrect romantic comedy that pokes fun at stereotypes in our ever-changing multicultural society.

Once in a Lifetime

A dedicated history teacher at a French high school looks for ways to motivate her troubled students in ONCE IN A LIFETIME, an uplifting drama based on a true story.

A teacher with 20 years of experience, Anne Gueguen (portrayed with no-nonsense schoolmarm pluck by Ariane Ascaride) is determined to give the best education she can to her underprivileged inner-city pupils. Overcoming their apathy, however, is proving to be more difficult than expected.

Frustrated but undaunted, Anne challenges her multicultural classroom with a unique assignment: entering a national competition on the theme of child victims of the Nazi concentration camps. The project is initially met with extreme resistance, until a face-to-face encounter with a Holocaust survivor changes the class’s attitude dramatically. Despite their long-shot odds of winning, these once-rebellious teens soon begin to see one another – and themselves – in a whole new light.
