“Crowd-pleasing comedy.” – Variety
Unashamedly romantic, the comedy of manners It Happened in Saint-Tropez begins with a family wedding and funeral.
Roni, a gauche, successful, irreligious diamond dealer who lives in the present is the polar opposite to brother Zef, a classical musician, cultured and observant.
Bound by their decrepit, elderly father and beautiful daughters, the family experiences fall-outs, fall-ins and fall-overs.
With a beautiful cast and playful performances Danièle Thompson’s film set in Paris, Saint-Tropez and New York is a veritable chocolate box of familial complications. Can the brothers’ conflicts be resolved, betrayals forgiven and illicit loves let flourish?
