RESCHEDULED FROM SATURDAY, MARCH 5!

Saint-Far-la-Mauderne is a provincial village hit hard by the recession. The town’s mayor (Didier Bourdon) intends to secure a loan to reopen the salmon-smoking factory, but the application requires the parish to have a full-time doctor. After the mayor gets no response to dozens of letters sent to Paris inviting doctors to their village, one doctor (Lorànt Deutsch) is offered the post in lieu of being arrested for drug possession. The town rolls out the red carpet to welcome the new physician, making the village seem more idyllic than it really is.

Home Sweet Home is a remake of 2013's French-Canadian comedy, The Grand Seduction. The film features Elie Semoun (Serial Bad Weddings), Carmen Maura (Women on the Verge of Nervous Breakdown), Lorànt Deutsch (Asterix and Obelix: Mansion of the Gods).


Five Funny French Films receives generous support from l’Alliance Française de Houston and Nina and Michael Zilkha.
