A film by Olivier Nakache, Eric Toledano

Back
For the happy couple this is the biggest night of their lives. But it’s just another of many for Max, from the catering company, Guy the photographer, James the singer, and everyone else working at the event. Pierre and Hélène have decided to celebrate their marriage in a beautiful 18th century castle on the outskirts of Paris. We follow the occasion from its preparation until the sun comes up, almost in real time, but only seen through the eyes of those working at the marriage. This will be a night full of surprises.

Director

Olivier Nakache, Eric Toledano

Writers, directors and childhood friends, Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache have worked as a team from their very first steps in cinema in the mid-90s. The duo is widely known and celebrated for The Intouchables, a heartwarming character-driven story, which went on to become one of France’s most successful films of all time. The film is the perfect example of what they do best, approach complex issues with relatable humor, and use dynamic storytelling and dialogue to create characters one never tires of watching.
