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.

JEUNE FEMME (2017)

jenne femme

camera d'or

A film by Léonor Serraille 

Cast: Laetitia Dosch, Souleymane Seye Ndiaye, Grégoire Monsaingeon

Broke with only her cat and her bag is locked out of her boyfriend’s apartment embark in the adventure in Paris.

Here is the portrait of a young woman who is in Paris knows no one there and tries to get a place to stay and food. Paula (Laetitia Dosh)  is in a hospital where she gets pissed off of why she is in the hospital to which she has been taken after trying to break down the door (with her head) of Joachim, a famous photographer. Suddenly after being back from Mexico her boyfriend does not want to see her anymore so with a cat and her bag at 31 years old  is in Paris all along trying to get a job and a place to stay. But very quickly this exuberant, straight-talking, hyper-social, sharp-tongued and  disturbed young woman is not entirely without resources, and may the adventure begins.

Laetitia Dosch, who  carries the film on her shoulders with here a great script. She gets into a melodrama mode with bits of humour. She meets characters along the way and even is mistaken for someone else in the subway. A woman who is damaged by rejection is going to seek into poverty, you will see how she is resourceful and trying to stay above water. And to top it all off her mother never wants to see her again. Nice one for a first film for Léonor Serraille with hope she will do good if not better in the near future. By the way the tile translation is young woman.
