Jean (Louis-Do de Lencquesaing), a renowned academic, is appointed Minister of the Family at the very moment when his own family is coming apart.
With its phenomenal cast, THE HOLY FAMILY casts a tender, ironic, sometimes melancholy glance at contemporary Balzacian characters, torn between their desires, their perception of duty and the temptation to let life follow its course. Few films describe the conventions, misconducts and eccentricities of the upper reaches of the French bourgeoisie with such accuracy and elegance.
THE HOLY FAMILY had its world premiere at the Locarno Film Festival, and features Laura Smet, Lea Drucker and Marthe Keller.
