COMEDY / FRANCE / 2019 / 105 MINS / MA15+
Coupled with his debut feature from 2016, Don’t Tell Her, Patrick Cassir firmly establishes his mantle as an accomplished maker of sassy, contemporary romantic comedies with the immensely witty and astute Our Happy Holiday.
Our Happy Holiday features
Heightened by an excellent supporting cast (the likes of Camille Cottin, Call My Agent, AF FFF2016; and Jérémie Elkaïm from the opening night film of AF FFF2012, Declaration of War), Our Happy Holiday goes beyond one-dimensional character clichés to present fully-rounded, relatable people, which makes the humour all the more pertinent. It’s a challenge not to fall in love with them, as well as this film.
DIRECTED BY: PATRICK CASSIR
STARRING: Camille Chamoux, Jonathan Cohen, Camille Cottin, Jérémie Elkaïm, Vincent Dedienne
