Peer into a world that is both familiar and revelatory, with this acclaimed French drama from “C.R.A.Z.Y.” director Remi Bezancon. Showing us five random days over twelve years, the film tells the story of a family confronted with the challenges and triumphs of everyday life together.

Robert Duval is a taxi driver married to Marie-Jeanne, who has shed the bohemian ways of her youth. Their three children struggle with growing up – whether the pressure of medical school, the teenage angst of an uncertain future or battling with body image. The unique structure provides a rich overview of one family’s life, and how their lives change and grow over the years.
