For the Ones We Loved

A cause des filles..?

France, 2018
96 minutes, Color
Official website

At a beautiful wedding, the bride and groom exchange the vows they have written. Once outside the church, the newlyweds can't resist kissing each other as friends and family cheer them on. But there's a woman in a convertible idling at the end of the steps. Seeing her, the groom shrugs and then races to her and leaps into the car, which speeds away. The startled bride insists that the party continue, as the restaurant has already been paid. Thus, the reception becomes an opportunity for friends and relatives to share their own stories of comically doomed love and failed seductions. The tales begin with the groom’s mother insisting that the shell-shocked bride should never have trusted her no-good son. The flashbacks are by turns witty, wise, and painfully funny—all on the theme of the eternal struggle of men and women to truly understand one another. —Dave Nuttycombe
