An ardent reflection of being Jewish in modern day France, this film speaks volumes about Jews and in the way that Polish Jew families interact with each other.  The lead character Julien is having inner conflicts and it started when the family learned that their deceased father intends to have his ashes scattered in Poland by the other son Pierre,who sadly has been missing for two years already.  Some comedic relief is evident, like that scene where someone suddenly sings during the funeral or that intimate scene of Julien and girlfriend (played by Sabrina Seyvecou) where the latter is seen singing a quite absurd song while atop Julien. Gallais was commendable as Julien and Seyvecou was also noticeable for her absurd style of humor and facial expressions.  This is an interesting piece of work by Director Charles Najman whose debut feature Royal Bonbon received the Prix Jean Vigo and selected for prestigious filmfests like the Locarno and Toronto International Film Festivals.
