Les Grandes Personnes

Albert has made a habit out of dragging his less-than-eager teenage daughter Jeanne to a different European location every year for her birthday. For her 17th birthday, Albert has organized a trip to a small Swedish island ? complete with a Viking treasure hunting adventure. But when the duo arrive at their rented holiday home, they realize that there’s been a mix-up and that they’ll have to share the house with two eccentric French ladies. The forced cohabitation will bring to the surface deep-seated issues and frustrations, and by the end of the holiday, everyone will be ready to leave the past behind and make a fresh start. A heartwarming comedy by the very promising first-time director Anna Novion.
