Let It Rain (Not Rated)

French with English subtitles

Agathe Villanova (director Agnès Jaoui, The Taste of Others) is a feminist and recent entrant to the political scene. She returns to her childhood home in the South of France to spend ten days helping her sister Florence sort out their mother’s affairs following her death a year earlier. Agathe doesn’t like the region and left it as soon as she could, but for reasons of gender balance in electoral lists, she's been parachuted back there for the next elections. The house is home to Florence (Pascale Arbillot), her husband and her children. There is also Mimouna (Mimouna Hadji), the housekeeper whom the Villanovas brought back from Algeria when it became independent. Mimouna’s son, Karim (Jamel Debbouze), and his friend Michel Ronsard (Jean-Pierre Bacri) decide to make a documentary about Agathe Villanova, for a collection of programs on "successful women". It's August. It's grey and it's raining. It's not normal. But then again, nothing is normal....
