The Reviews for The Bélier Family (2014) 1080p


I left the theatre feeling as if I had watched nothingReviewed byzzwertyVote: 5/10

This is a really conventional film. It wasn't painful, It's not like I didn't enjoy it. But I really can't fathom the rave reviews

As I was watching, it always felt as if it would take an interesting turn, or something. There was the mother's "we thought you were a lesbian!" comment. I thought perhaps this might be genuine and perhaps the daughter was actually jealous of her best friend's regular sexual encounters. But I quickly realised it was intended to be a joke, based on the laughing of the people who thought it was funny for some reason.

It felt as if the characters had potentially important interactions and then immediately forgot about them. For example, at the start there is a scene in which a GP instructs the couple not to have sex for 3 weeks at least (, presumably due to some kind of disease). Not long after that they have sex anyway. But the consequences or significance of this is never touched upon. What was the purpose of the GP scene, seeing as nothing he said affected anything in the movie? These kinds of seemingly meaningless, but perhaps mildly funny scenes are littered throughout the movie. It feels like they were spreading the seeds for interesting plot items later on but all this potential was abandoned to focus on the main plot. which is straight out of Hollywood, it'd be hard to find a more typical coming-of-age story.

All this would have been perfectly passable if the characters had been more charming and interesting. But instead most seem very shallow, quite cliché. Both the love interest and younger brother rarely go beyond the teenage male stereotype as perpetuated by middle agers. Here is a list of the younger brother's interesting traits: -he loves his sister -he likes breasts -he wants to have sex with his sister's friend Here is a list of the love interest's interesting traits: -he is kinda sad or worried for some reason and quits singing even though he's good at it (this is never followed up?) -that wasn't a personality trait and the love interest is a really boring character. It doesn't help that the actor doesn't seem capable of more than one facial expression.

The singing teacher is somewhat interesting. But it seems like he changes throughout the movie. At first, he's dismissing the central character's friend from the choir audition before she even sang based on the way she looked if I recall correctly. So I thought "wow, this person really is a dick". But then the central character barely seems to even care and by the end of the movie the teacher is nothing but warm and cordial. There are posters of someone all over his room but this is also never discussed. Similarly there are interesting posters all over the central character's room. What looks like a Chinese communist poster in her study area, hindu posters on the wall. But they are also never discussed and I'm still wondering how they got there.

The acting is all pretty good except for the love interest, especially how little there seemed to be to work with. Same with cinematography and music.

So yeah. I left feeling as if I had watched nothing. Like I can remember watching all these events happen, but they had no meaning or significance within the plot. The only plot that was followed through was so cliché I may as well have already seen it. What did I think of the movie? I don't feel like I even watched a movie...

An emotional roller-coaster that connected with me in a personal levelReviewed byestebangonzalez10Vote: 7/10

"I am not fleeing, I'm flying. Understand well, I'm flying"

There are times when a film can hit close to home making it hard to review objectively because it has spoken to you in a very personal manner. That is the case with Eric Lartigau's French film, La Famille Belier, which centers on a family who are all deaf and mute except for their adolescent daughter who has become an important part of their life since she serves as their translator to the outside world. The family owns a farm and sells cheese at the local market. Despite of their disabilities, Gigi (Karin Viard) and Rodolphe (Francois Damiens), are very cheerful and caring parents. Their daughter, Paula (Louane Emera), is a talented singer, but of course her parents don't understand what music means to people. When her choir director discovers her potential, he asks her to participate in an entrance exam for the Maitrise de Radio France, an elite school for musicians in Paris. This puts Paula in a very difficult position because she knows how much she is needed by her family, but she also realizes that this a great opportunity for her to do what she loves. She also has a smaller brother named Quentin (Luca Gelberg) with the same disabilities. The film connected with me on a personal level because my father had a stroke five years ago and hasn't been able to speak since. He understands everything and communicates through signs and expressions, but he can't speak. The right side of his body was affected as well and he has trouble moving his leg and has no movement in his arm. I've been his therapist and seen his improvements from day one. He's also been very upbeat, cheerful and full of faith with regards to his disability. I connected with Paula's character because I understood the sacrifice she makes everyday for her family, although I'm in no way talented with my singing. The reason I'm writing all this is because it is hard to review a film that touches you in such a personal way. The film doesn't have any brilliant technical aspects to it, the story is melodramatic and clichéd, the performances are sometimes over the top (but comedic nonetheless) and the music sometimes can play a key role into manipulating the mood of the audience. These are aspects of films that I usually criticize, but in this film none of that mattered because it was an emotional roller coaster for me personally. I was entertained from the very beginning and enjoyed the entire film despite its flaws.

The lead role is played by Louane Emera who has a beautiful voice without a doubt. She was actually a participant in the French reality TV show, The Voice. This is her first film, but she really delivers a natural and touching performance. Speaking of reality shows, the film actually feels like one at times. You know how they usually try to engage the audience by introducing a participant who had a troubled past and is overcoming the obstacles to achieve his or her dreams. That is kind of what they do here with the character of Paula, they are using her difficult life story to touch the audience and make us care for her. I didn't have a problem with that however because it worked here. It manages to be funny and sad at the same time and it balances out those moments throughout the entire film. There are many subplots that weren't developed and should've been left out, but I think they were included mostly for comedic purposes and to take away our attention from the main theme of the film. Take for instance the moment where Rodolphe decides that he is going to run for mayor. There are a few funny moments but the film doesn't go anywhere with that. There is also a subplot revolving around Quentin's relationship with one of Paula's best friends, but that also ends up going nowhere. Those subplots were included as a way to mix things up a bit and fool the audience as to which way the film was heading, because in the end it is a bit all too predictable and clichéd. However, the music in this film works extremely well and I ended up caring for these characters and the decisions they had to make. Karin Viard and Francois Damiens had great chemistry together and provided most of the comedy in the film. Viard goes a bit overboard with her exaggerated stagey performance, but it worked. La Famille Belier is a very charming feel-good movie full of funny and sincerely touching moments.

Very good coming-of-age filmReviewed byIndustriousAngelVote: 8/10

After the streak of french blockbuster comedies (Bienvenue chez les Ch'tis, Intouchables, Qu'est-ce qu'on a fait au Bon Dieu?) I had the impression that this one was a comedy too - but it's much more a sweet coming-of-age story, with some very funny moments thrown in. Plus there are some elements of the choir-film sub-genre - good choice, the human voice brings much emotion to the film.

Paula (played adorably by Louane Emera in I think her first feature) is the girl who is faced with the difficult decision - take the step from her family's farm and arms out into the world (= Paris, to work on her beautiful voice), or stay at home with them?

This is made more difficult by the fact that her parents and brother are all deaf-mute, so she feels very responsible (which means, of course, that she's making it difficult for herself, since, as her teacher points out - what were they doing before she was born?!). Thrown in is a little love story - which stays very background, surprising in a coming-of-age story but a good choice, because the film is all about Paula's step away from her family, not about the discovery of boys.

The deaf-mute theme is used for some gags, and to make it harder for Paula, but where it works best is in two scenes towards the end, none of them comedic but both very touching - in both cases it's about how the parents can (or can't) enjoy her daughters singing, an in both cases director/writer Eric Lartigau found perfect and satisfying solutions how to present this on screen - I don't want to spoil those scenes but you'll know what I mean when you see it.

The only weaknesses of this film are some small unexplored (and therefor unnecessary) side plots, and maybe an overplaying of the deaf-mute thing for comical effect which takes away some realism (needing an interpreter for the news on TV? really?) - but overall, highly recommended!
