With Isabella Rosselinni
Nine-year old Rachel is the only child of the most doting, loving parents ever. Naturally she dreams of getting out from under all this suffocating adoration, even wishing she were an orphan. Her shrink offers no relief from the boredom and discontent. Luckily, she crosses paths with Valérie, a mischievous scamp with cheek to spare. And when Valérie’s single mother meets Rachel’s father, Rachel’s loving parents are soon on the verge of a lovely mess. Set in the ’80s, Tardieu’s adaptation of the Raphaële Moussafir novel sometimes treats serious subjects in an off-handed way, but often with a darkness hovering at the edges. Throughout it all, the gentle charm and warmth of the family is centered on Agnès Jaoui, who puts in a memorable and touching performance as Rachel’s Jewish mother.
