Max is a veteran wedding planner who is thinking about selling on his business. For now, however, there’s something more pressing to worry about: organising alavish wedding in a 17th century chateau. It’s no small task: there’s dozens of people to manage, unreliable electricity, a last-minute musician change, and an increasingly demanding groom. Soon, things start going very wrong indeed. Can Max and his team sort everything out without the guests noticing?

The latest film from Untouchable directors Olivier Nakache and Éric Toledano is a gloriously manic French comedy. It hits the ground running and barely takes a breath as wedding disaster after disaster unfolds. With larger-than-life characters and laugh-out-loud set pieces, C’est La Vie! is a delight.

This is an expertly assembled, tartly played and hugely enjoyable romp from directors Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache, whose Intouchables became a monster hit a few years ago.” – The Hollywood Reporter

“Co-directors and screenwriters Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache (Intouchables) pull another magical trick out of the hat with a ruthlessly-plotted breeze of ensemble good humour.” – Screen International
