“AN AUTHENTIC COMEDY ABOUT THE DIRECTOR’S CHILDHOOD SET IN THE LATE SEVENTIES” Cinemovies
On a holiday to Brittany in 1976, an Algerian-Jewish family and their friends from Paris are met with initial distrust by the Catholic locals…. and so ensues an almighty comedy of culture clashes – the country versus the city. France in the ‘70s is here in all its glory with its black vinyl, yellow Gordini cars and, of course, gigantic “bell-bottoms” not to mention the eternal Françoise Hardy. The accent of the locals is completely incomprehensible and the Parisians’ attitude equally so. Narrated by the child of the main character, My Best Holidays gives way to holiday romance, nostalgia, humour and friendship.
