ScreenDaily reveals that MPI has taken on the movie, with a spring theatrical and DVD/VOD release in the works. Starring Marion Cotillard, "The Artist" star Jean Dujardin, Gilles Lelouche and more, the ensemble dramedy centers on a group of longtime pals who assemble for their annual summer getaway in the wake of the death of a close friend. Over the course of the vacation, various secrets and dramas are confronted and dealt with, and yes, it's all very "The Big Chill," bit with a Gallic warmth that is endearing. We caught the film last year on its Canadian relase (review here), and while we had issues with the third act, for the most part, the film is a strongly acted, very perceptive, funny and subtle look at the shifting tides of relationships.
If that doesn't convince you, the film also has a great soundtrack that includes David Bowie, The Isley Brothers, The Band, Janis Joplin, Gladys Knight & The Pips and more. Dates for the release haven't yet been revealed, but you can watch the trailer for the movie below.
