MY BROTHER IS GETTING MARRIED

MON FRERE SE MARIE

un film de : 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.

French Synopsis :

Vinh, réfugié boat-people, adopté 20 ans plus tôt par une famille suisse, va se marier. Sa mère naturelle, restée au Vietnam, saisit l'occasion pour faire le voyage et rencontrer la famille si parfaite qui a aimé et élevé son fils. Mais il y a déjà bien longtemps que cette famille a éclaté et qu'ils ne se supportent plus les uns et les autres. La visite inattendue de Madame Nguyen va mettre tout le monde en émoi. Il va falloir se replonger pour quelques jours dans les rôles oubliés de père, d'épouse, de frère et de soeur. Redevenir une famille idéale, aimante et complice, pour jouer une fragile comédie du bonheur.
