Storyline:Louis (Gaspard Ulliel) made it a successful writer at the age of 34, but that's not the real reason why he returns to his hometown after spending 12 years absent. Because Louis is now dying and has not much to live long. That's why he wants to inform his family, but that's anything but easy. For the family afternoon with his mother (Nathalie Baye), his younger sister Suzanne (Léa Seydoux), his older brother Antoine (Vincent Cassel) and his wife Catherine (Marion Cotillard) open old wounds and cook long-back feuds again. And the heated minds do everything they can to make life difficult for each other, while nobody wants to lend an open ear to Louis ... Based on the play by Jean-Luc Lagarce.
