On the other side of town their hard-up neighbours, Vero, Jerome and Loic, are roughing it at a nearby caravan park and hating every minute. meanwhile enjoying life stateside Elizabeth and Bertrand's nymphomaniac daughter, Emilie, is partying with boyfriend Kevin, unaware that he's embezzled the money from her father's firm to pay for the trip......The scene is set for a farce of outrageous proportions, involving bed-swapping, mistaken identity, suicide bids, passionate affairs and rampant testosterone....but whatever difficulties the holiday makers get into, they make sure it never gets in the way of their constant pursuit of pleasure.

When her unfaithful husband Bertrand (Jacques Dutronc) makes excuses to stay in Paris to enjoy an ongoing affair with transsexual Rena, Elizabeth sets off for her vacation at an upmarket seaside resort taking friend Julie for company. Single mother Julie (Clotilde Courau) has her own ideas on how to enjoy the break - desperate for a steamy holiday romance she's in no mood to allow her screaming baby or their hard-up neighbours (who just happen to be roughing it in a nearby trailer park) dampen her enthusiasm for some passion. Spicing things up further, other guests at Elizabeth's posh hotel who become entangled in the frantic goings on are depressed jealous husband Jean-Pierre (played by Director Michel Blanc), his exasperated wife Lulu (Carole Bouquet) and serial womaniser Maxime (Vincent Elbaz). Hormonal antics are also taking place in Chicago where Elizabeth and Bertrand's promiscuous teenage daughter Emilie (Lou Doillon) parties wildly with boyfriend Kevin who is paying for their fun with money embezzled from Bertrand's firm. Did I mention the word farce? The crazier it becomes just adds to the enjoyment because no matter how complex things get, this wild bunch of holidaymakers wont let anything get in their way of their constant search for pleasure...
Blanc cleverly links the various story lines.Read more ›
Nice entertainment if you accept the "farce" premise and go along for the ride. Rampling alone is worth the ticket price.
Extras are fairly light - just a trailer and a photo montage with an audio essay by the director.
