Madame Vieuzac has just passed away in her house in Southwestern France, far from the hue and cry of Paris in May, 1968. Her son, Milou, who has always lived with his mother, summons the rest of the family for the funeral. Children and grand-children of the dear departed are delighted or displeased to find themselves together again. But the "events" happening in Paris catch up with them : the grave - diggers are on strike and the funeral cannot be held.

Mai '68 un clin d'oeil!

Ce film a beaucoup d'acteurs bien connus avec le début de Valérie Lemercier qui joue un rôle intéressant. Tout se déroule pendant les manifs de ’68 en arrière-plan d’une famille qui va à la campagne pour les obsèques de la marraine de la famille. La division de ses affaires et les intrigues qui vont avec la lecture de son testament dernier. La vie des année 60s et la révolution des rapports sexuels. Un film intéressant et à la fois on sent en famille avec eux. Les spectateurs ont bien aimé. Our small rural audience enjoyed this film which is based around the student protests of the late 60's. This family is farewelling the matriarch of the family and the strike affects even her burial! There is action every minute with a great cast during this film set in the "free love" 60's which affects the family. The viewer almost becomes like one of the family. A French classic.
