Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
Distinguished French actor Michel Piccoli was 72-years-old when he made his directorial debut with this keen black comedy of a wildly dysfunctional family and the destructive games they play whenever they force themselves to get together. Piccoli also penned the screenplay. Constantin is the father and rules his small dynasty of three unsuccessful sons with an iron fist. Every Sunday, Constantin insists that the family gather for dinner, even though these meals genuinely possess a nightmarish quality due to the unruly grandkids, the unbridled lusts the brothers have for each other's wives, and their ceaseless bickering.
