Wedding bells are ringing, and in a grand castle outside of Paris the happy couple and all their guests are ready for the party. Max Angély is a veteran in the wedding-planning business, and this is his last big gig before retirement. But when his waiters aren’t turning up, the main course has gone bad, and his co-worker/girlfriend Josiane is hitting on one of the young staff members, things are getting out of hand. Add to the mix a micromanaging groom, an obnoxious photographer and a wedding band with a vain lead singer thinking he’s the Gallic Tom Jones, and the floor is about to get slippery for Max’ last waltz.

Jean-Pierre Barci (Max) is playing the lead of a superb cast of loveable characters in this big-hearted comedy by Olivier Nakache and Éric Toledano (THE INTOUCHABLES). C’EST LA VIE! will make you think twice next time someone proposes to you, at least when it comes to planning the wedding.
