A film by Laurent Achard
On his parents' farm, Martin, aged 11, watches helplessly as his family falls apart.
His mother, cut off from the world around her, lives locked away in her room. The older brother he worships drowns his sorrows in alcohol, and his father, under the grandmother's thumb, is a powerless spectator of his family's decline.
Martin gets ready to put an end to the chaos around him...
A film by Jean-Stéphane Bron
Vinh, a Vietnamese refugee, was adopted 20 years earlier by a Swiss family and is about to get married. His Vietnamese mother seizes this opportunity to finally meet the family that loved and raised her son. And to meet the people who write her postcards every Christmas to tell her that the whole family is united and thinking of her.
But things are not quite going the way these messages imply and the unexpected visit of Mrs Nguyen is going to cause some agitation to the family.
Now they are going to have to act out the forgotten roles of father, mother, brother and sister? to play the fragile comedy of happiness.

They had never stepped foot on French soil but because France was at war, Saïd, Abdelkader, Messaoud and Yassir enlisted in the French Army, along with 130,000 other indigenous soldiers, to liberate the "fatherland" from the Nazi enemy. These heroes that history forgot won battles in Italy, Provence and the Vosges before finding themselves alone to defend an Alsatian village against a German battalion.
