Let My People Go!2012

  • 3.6
A sweet and hilarious fusion of gay romantic comedy, Jewish family drama and French bedroom farce, Mikael Buch's LET MY PEOPLE GO! follows the travails and daydreams of the lovelorn Ruben, a French-Jewish gay mailman living in fairytale Finland (where he got his MA in "Comparative Sauna Cultures") with his gorgeous Nordic boyfriend. But just before Passover, a series of mishaps and a lovers' quarrel exile the heartbroken Ruben back to Paris and his zany family (including Almodovar goddess Carmen Maura as his ditzy mom), and Truffaut regular Jean-Francois Stevenin as his lothario father. Scripted by director Mikael Buch and renowned arthouse auteur Christophe Honore, LET MY PEOPLE GO! both celebrates and upends Jewish and gay stereotypes with wit, gusto and style to spare. The result is deeply heartwarming, fabulously kitschy and hysterically funny.
