A captivating new star is born in The Bélier Family, Éric Lartigau’s uproarious box office smash-hit about family ties, the joy of music and breaking free.

In the Bélier family, everyone is deaf, except dutiful 16-year-old Paula (beautiful newcomer Louane emera). She acts as an indispensible interpreter for her parents and younger brother, especially in the running of the family dairy farm.

Though her salt-of-the-earth father (François Damiens, Delicacy) has decided to run for mayor - spurred on by her vivacious but over-involved mother, portrayed by the wonderful Karin Viard - Paula’s attentions are very much elsewhere. She’s witnessed the handsome new boy at school sign up for the choir, and impulsively joined too. It’s not long before her music teacher (Éric Elmosnino) discovers her considerable talent, however his encouragement only exacerbates the matter of Paula’s independence…

Building to a heart-soaring finale, The Bélier Family is an utter delight. Emera is a true revelation, lending an extraordinary spirit to this raucous and deeply moving crowd-pleaser.
