Comedy "Léo, a patriarch and former businessman, now wants to settle scores with his three sons David, Max and Simon, and rekindle family affection. He’s even prepared to pretend that he is ill in order to get the sympathy vote, and convinces them to come with him on a journey from France to Canada where he wants reunite the far-flung members of the clan. There they make some unexpected encounters ... For his first film as a director actor Michel Boujenah triumphs by delivering a patchwork of conflicting emotions, and a refreshing sense of humour. Philippe Noiret contributes one of his irrepressible performances as the cantankerous father with the long-suffering trio of Charles Berling, Pascal Elbé and Bruno Putzulu as his brood."
