FAMILY RESEMBLANCES / Friday 10th at 8:30 pm

SYNOPSIS
In this black comedy from France, a family gathers in a tavern, ostensibly to celebrate a birthday, but poking each other’s sore spots turns out to be the main order of business. Henri (Jean-Pierre Bacri) runs a saloon that he inherited from his father called « The Sleepy Dad, » and in the near-empty bar, he plays host to several members of the family as they mark the 35th birthday of his sister-in-law, Yolande (Catherine Frot). Henri’s sister, Betty (Agnès Jaoui), is 30, single, and not very happy about it; his brother (and Yolande’s husband), Phillipe (Vladimir Yordanoff), runs a growing software company; Mother (Claire Maurier) is the siblings’ strong-willed matriarch; and Henri’s dog is on hand, whom someone describes as « like a rug, but alive. »
