A very good movie

11 years, 1 month ago at Dec 20 10:50
In fact, I  watched this movie just a few days before Christmas. It wasn't on purpose at all but I thought the coincidence was pretty neat. Anyway, basically, it turned out to be one of those French dramas dealing with a dysfunctional familly. Indeed, it was really talkative, unfocused and rather chaotic (it took me almost 30 minutes to figure out who was who) but I really enjoyed it. In the cont... read more

"First Viewing Plot: The troubled Vuillard family is no stranger to illness, grief, and banishment, but when their matriarch requires a bone-marrow transplant, the estranged clan reunites just in time for Christmas. I believe that A Christmas Tale is officially the last "big hitter" Christmas movie that has been on my list for years and years. I believe it first came across my radar over 10 years ago, but I never got to it until now. Frankly, however, I expected something better. I wouldn't say"

"17.12. Syöpä on tappavaa, mutta niin on myös perhejoulukin. Kaksi ja puolituntia kestävä ranskalainen draamakomedia aiheesta, joka vituttaa monia tähän aikaan vuodesta, on ihan hyvin rullaava ja hyvin hahmokeskeinen kuvaus. Loppua kohden meininki kuitenkin alkaa puuduttaa, ja huomasin nuokkuvani olohuoneen sohvalla."

" TITLE OF WRITTEN WORK: La Greffe PUBLISHED FORMAT: novel AUTHOR/CREATOR: Jacques Asher and Jean-Pierre Jouet ORIGINAL PUBLICATION YEAR: circa 2004 HAVE I READ: No NOTES: Hahaha! I tried to trace the publication of the written basis of this film and everything I got was in French. Understandable since the authors are French, as is the film. "
