Happy 50 (Plancha)

Five Funny French Films

For Yves’s 50th birthday, his pals plan a holiday trip to Greece. When their flight is canceled they reroute to Yves’s family estate in Brittany. The region’s customary rains keep them indoors, where strong personalities collide and one of the gifts to Yves (Guillaume de Tonquédec) has unforeseen results. Disagreements and secrets abound in Happy 50, with an ensemble cast including Jérôme Commandeur, Valérie Crouzet, Franck Dubosc, and Lambert Wilson.
