Synopsis

Claude and Marie are conservative Catholics who hoped to pass on their values to their four daughters. The three oldest have all married men who are immigrants, each one with a different religion. In front of their Jewish, Arab and Chinese sons-in-law, Claude and Marie try to hide their xenophobic tendencies.

When their youngest daughter announces that she’s engaged to a Catholic man, hope is reborn in the couple. But the parents soon find out their future son-in-law is a black man from the Ivory Coast. Resigned, the couple agrees to the union. However, things get complicated when the future in-laws, dominated by an authoritarian and racist father, take part in the organization of the wedding ceremony.

  • 5 stars "Hysterically funny. One of the best movies in a long time. Unashamedly politically incorrect. Excellent screenplay with a truly wonderful cast. Couldn't stop laughing."
  • 5 stars "I was lucky enough to see this on a flight and I do not understand the issue with British and American audiences. It is not racist because it breaks down the ignorance of someone who is initially racist but discovers the error of his ways. It says more about the ignorance of those who wish to dictate what our views should be. Not very democratic. A great comedy and a typical French slant on a topical subject."
