is a hilarious blend of small-town snobbery, insatiable lust and infidelity. When Elizabeth's (Charlotte Rampling) wayward husband Bertrand (Jacques Dutronc) finds every excuse to stay at home in Paris with his mistress, Elizabeth invites friend Julie on holiday instead. She's a single mother desperate for holiday romance, but with a screaming baby in tow. On the other side of town their hard-up neighbours are roughing it at a nearby caravan park while Elizabeth's and Bertrand's nymphomaniac daughter, Emile, is partying stateside with boyfriend Kevin, unaware that he's embezzled the money from her father's firm to pay for the trip

While hosting a dinner party, the well-to-do Elizabeth (Charlotte Rampling) and Bertrand Lannier (Jacques Dutronc) learn that their neighbors Veronique (Karin Viard) and Jerome (Denis Podalydes) -- who used to be successful but are currently hiding their financial woes -- will be vacationing in the same resort town at the same time. Impulsively, Elizabeth invites her friend, and fellow dinner party guest, Julie (Clotilde Courau), to join them and thus make a party out of the event. However, Bertrand backs out of the trip while claiming to have to work -- only to schedule a rendezvous with his lover, his transsexual secretary (Mickael Dolmen), instead. Meanwhile, the Lannier's teenaged daughter, Emilie (Lou Doillon), has been planning a parentally endorsed vacation to the United States with one of her friends, but is in actuality going on a romantic retreat with one of her father's employees, Kevin (Sami Bouajila). As the separate excursions commence, a number of romantic couplings spring up -- as well as a number of new friendships -- that will have long-lasting effects on all of the vacationers' lives. See How They Run received the honor of being selected for inclusion into the 2002 Montreal World Film Festival.
