Our February Screen 2 film will be La Famille Belier...
In the Bélier family, everyone is deaf except 16 year old Paula who acts as interpreter for her parents and younger brother on the family dairy farm. A heart-felt comedy about a young girl whose close bond with her family is challenged by the discovery of an extraordinary talent for music.
"A canny cast earn any final-reel tears honestly: the ever-ebullient Viard proves even more expressive without spoken dialogue, and Eric Elmosnino lends wry support as the choirmaster." Mark McCarhill, Gaurdian
"The humour - there are quite a few good one-liners - and the warmth, the charm, the pathos, and the topic make it a pleasure." Mark Demetrius, Filmink (Australia)
