Did you want a break? An acid comedy about sex, diapers, and rock and roll
Synopsis: Three couples with their children. A long weekend in the countryside. A reunion between friends that starts with enjoyment and laughter becomes a cohabitation that will bring up old conflicts, hidden secrets, and unexpected encounters. Like an x-ray of those who are in their 40s, Break dives into the duality of family life, the fantasy of returning to teenage years, pending wishes, the contradictions of the bourgeois life, and the time that escapes us.
Candid and contemporary with moments of profound intelligence Break is at once a dynamic comedy and tender drama. Replete with identifiable characters, it shines a refreshing light on anxieties about middle age, weaving in questions around generational differences and class tensions in a manner that is bold, attractive and undeniably funny.
* SPECIAL EVENT: Enjoy complimentary wine after the Première to celebrate the Festival program launch.
