GASPARD VA AU MARRIAGE (2018)

Gaspard va au Mariage

A film by Antony Cordier

Cast: Félix Moati, Laetitia Dosch, Christa Théret

English: Gaspard goes to the wedding

After 25 years of carefully keeping away for years, 25-year-old Gaspard is due to return to his father second wedding . Accompanied by Laura, a whimsical girl who agrees to play his girlfriend during the wedding, he finally feels ready to set foot in the zoo of his parents and find the animals that he saw growing up .. But between a father who is too much of a ladies man, a brother who is too reasonable, and a sister who is too beautiful, he is not aware that he is about to live the last days of his childhood.

Thus, the most ambivalent meanings of the film are revealed. The limit is tenuous between the crazy and degenerate comedy, the crazy characters barely masking the confusion of the family.  the zoo is the character of the story but you don’t get to see the visitors because Cordier decided to focus on the family the centre of the story. It is represented by obsolete photos and flashback.  We understand then that if Gaspard wanted to come with a girlfriend, so he does not get sucked in into his family who are linked together, he wants to get his own life away from all of that. And his sister there is something there are they both in love or not just sister love. But one of the bother is hiding something and is trying to protect his sister who seems to know already. Here is a nice little comedy with a bunch of colourful characters that has a funny ways of celebrating life with dancing bodies with love flourishing around them.

A film by Gilles Bourdos.
Cast: Michel Bouquet, Christa Theret, Vincent Rottiers.
Set on the French Riviera in the summer of 1915, Jean Renoir — son of the Impressionist painter, Pierre-Auguste — returns home to convalesce after being wounded in World War I. At his side is Andrée, a young woman who rejuvenates, enchants, and inspires both father and son.

Gille Bourdos uses the well-known stories of the painter father Pierre-Auguste and the filmmaker son Jean Renoir for a film that is at once breathtaking And a beautiful dramatization. Film on the french riviera The cinematography is breathtaking. The plot presents the 74-year-old veteran painter (Michel Bouquet) and his ravishing new 15-year-old model, Andree Heuschling (Christa Theret) enjoying their opulent country estate while WW I is going on. Here Renoir explains that structure comes from colour, not form, and he refuses to use black. Because black represent atrocity in this world and that is not what he want to paint. Pierre-Auguste also has at the time arteritis and was in severe pain and the 15 year old makes him forget about it and rediscover painting. Son Jean (Vincent Rottiers) returns from the front with a symbol of the reality his father rejects. he also falls in love with André. His brother tells him why do you want to go back to this war? The family has a few secrets what family does not by the way. well casted film as well as well film.
