The 29th Alliance Francais Film Festival opened in Brisbane again on the 8th March with the magnifique, C'est La Vie. It's directed by Oliver Nakache and Eric Toledano, who are best known for the 2011 international smash hit, The Intouchables.

Their latest offering, C'est La Vie, centres on Max, a slightly cantankerous and very stressed party event planner. We see him with his disparate team of workers and although Max has everything organised immaculately, his team seems intent on accidentally ruining Pierre and Helena's wedding.

The film has perfectly balanced characters, a great soundtrack and so many laugh out loud moments. From the diva-esque performance of DJ James, to the exacting requirements of the groom and the sweet incompetence of the staff trying to stage a 17th-century wedding - in costume.

As well as this delightful film, there are almost 50 other cinematic offerings, including many award-winning films. You can read more about the 2018 Film Festival here.

The Alliance Francais Film Festival runs in Brisbane from the 8th March - 4th April, with films showing at Palace Centro and Palace Barracks. C'est La Vie is running at both cinemas throughout this time and shows most days. Adult tickets are $20 but concessions and discounts are available for Alliance Francaise members.
