Arnaud Desplechin’s A Christmas Tale, is the only “Christmas movie” I actually like. It’s one of the best family dramas I’ve ever seen, equally happy and melancholic. My favorite performance is of the hilarious, black sheep brother, Henri, played by Mathieu Amalric (same guy who played the bad guy from Quantum of Solace). Legendary French actress Cather Deneuve plays Junon, the matriarch of the family.
It’s very French and you won’t ever forget the Vuillard family.4 notes ~~ Permalink ~~ Reblog ~~
