Officially, he wants to spend one last week with their children before announcing their separation. Unofficially he hopes to win back his wife… But the children, now in their thirties, are less docile than 20 years ago and the hunt for memories on the roads of Greece will quickly tire everyone.

Our review :

For his first feature film, François Uzan offers us a film that is both tender and funny. We follow the adventures of a family in which each of the members is led at some point to face their own demons and to free themselves in order to move forward. Between the father who constantly lives in the past, the mother who is bored to death and no longer thrives in this relationship once her children have left the nest, the daughter, lawyer, who needs to control everything and the son, “good for nothing”, who is always looking for his way. Without forgetting the son-in-law who has only one ambition, to finally be accepted by his father-in-law whom he is obviously the only one to idolize!

Mixing all these characters and having them experience exactly the same vacation as 20 years ago gives you a hilarious, extremely well-written and very fair comedy which, despite its nostalgic side, will remind you that the best memories are those you has not yet lived!

In short, magnificent sets, a terrific cast and a lot of humor to discover at the cinema without delay!
