LET MY PEOPLE GO!
Dir. Mikael Buch (88min, France, 2011)
French with English Subtitles
A hilarious fusion of gay romantic comedy, Jewish family drama and French bedroom farce, this film follows the travails and daydreams of the lovelorn Reuben, a French-Jewish mailman living in fairytale Finland with his gorgeous Nordic boyfriend. Just before Passover, a lovers’ quarrel exiles Reuben back to Paris and his zany family—including Almodovar goddess Carmen Maura (Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, Volver) as his ditzy mom, and Truffaut regular Jean-François Stévenin as his lothario father.
