Movie Review – La Famille Bélier

by Eric Lartigau

‘A girl, who lives with her deaf-mute parents, discovers that she has the gift of singing.’ (IMDb) (by Eric Lartigau, 100 min.)

This movie is just so heart-wrenching good. It’s a beautiful story about a family who are deaf-mute and the teenage daughter isn’t. After a few choir-lessons at school, she discovers she likes to sing and is actually quite good at it. Their entire routine gets fumbled and they all have to accept to change their ways so everybody can be happy.

I cried at the theatre. I’m not going to lie and I’m not ashamed of it. It got to me. The entire story is told in such a way that you immediately feel with the family. And they are funny. I kept laughing through it all, right until the end.

Definitely a little gem of the French cinema and worth watching.

4,5 out of 5 stars.
