Monday to Imperial CinemaIt was the night of the highly anticipated movie premiere A guide to the perfect family, whose release had to be postponed several times due to the epidemic. After waiting patiently, many artists here wanted to walk the red carpet to see the new feature film Richard Trugo.
The director partners again with Louis Morissette, who co-signed the script Jean Francois Leger And the Francois Avard. The Trogi-Morissette duo isn’t in their first rodeo: the two guys have worked together too blue house And the Simmons, but also mirage. With A guide to the perfect familyWe find the same mix of drama and comedy as in their 2015 film, although their new show has far fewer tense moments than anxiety.
This time around, Louis Morissette plays not the husband who fantasizes about his wife’s best friend (with rather disastrous consequences), but rather a father, Martin, who takes pleasure in his disdain for millennials (especially one of his employees, played by his favorite actor from Troji, Jean Karl Boucherwho strives for perfection, especially through the success of his eldest daughter, Rose,Emily Pierre), which puts great pressure on him.
Martin’s world is upended when his daughter drops out of school. Ashamed, he saw it as a personal defeat, while Rose didn’t know how to make her father understand that she was suffering from the performance anxiety he created for her. At the same time, Marie Soleil (Catherine Chabot), Martin’s wife and stepmother Rose, protects her troubled son Mattis (Xavier Lebel), who does not receive the same attention from her father as her half-sister, who herself would undoubtedly benefit from a more present mother. Herz, Caroline (Isabelle Girard), spends a large part of his time in Europe for work.
This image makes Martin a figure who represents two poles of what parenting can be negative: an obsolete, even completely absent, father, as with his son, versus an overly demanding and strict father, such as with his daughter. Suppose we are far from the model he received, i.e. the slap education given by his father (Renault generationDefends body and soul and defends Martin’s brotherAlexander Jewett) to get more Wheat ».
These often opposing characters present a lot of comedic situations, and there are many bursts of laughter while watching A guide to the perfect family, but it is these same differences that cause rifts between them, causing moments of great drama. Here we play very subtly at two tables, both in text and in interpretation, for an frankly successful film, which at times forces us to meditate and is calmed by others by its little side. I feel good.
Several public figures were able to take advantage of the premiere to see the movie, which promises to be all the rage in theaters and, Later on Netflix. On the red carpet, in addition to the film crew, we were able to see, among other things, all The Cloutier Morissette familyAnd the Elise Marquez and her daughter Alice DairyAnd the Cynthia Dulud His mother or former academics Shayan Hydari And the William Clutter.
