The multi-talented writer-director-actress Agnès Jaoui stars as an aspiring politician who reluctantly revisits her roots in this witty, intelligent and superbly performed comedy. When she returns to her childhood home in the South of France for an election rally and help her sister with her late mother’s affairs, Agathe Villanova (Jaoui) is asked to take part in a documentary about successful women. But the ineptitude of the comically amateurish filmmakers (Jamael Debbouze and Jean-Pierre Bacri) manages to exacerbate the tensions of all those around them, forcing Agathe to confront the consequences of her own ambitions.
Once again collaborating with Jean-Pierre Bacri, co-writer and star of Look At Me and Le Goût des Autres, Agnes Jaoui’s entertaining film takes a humorous and perceptive look at relationships.
