Max (Jean-Pierre Bacri) has been running his catering business for over 30 years. He’s putting together a fairytale wedding party for Pierre and Héléna, in a 17th century chateau.

Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache’s (Intouchables) delightful new comedy brings us all the chaotic goings-on both at the party and behind-the-scenes. Max barely manages to keep hold of the reigns as he relies on this most disorganised and inept team of chefs, waiters, musicians, photographers… This hugely enjoyable and very funny ensemble piece offers an eclectic mix of loveable characters all directed with a rare gift in this ideally cast led by Jean-Pierre Bacri, and superb supporting actors Jean-Paul Rouve, Gilles Lellouche, Vincent Macaigne, Eye Haidara and Suzanne Clément.
