When their grandfather dies, Gabrielle, Elsa and Mao are reunited. They hadn’t seen each other much for the past 20 years, following their parents’ divorce. Gabrielle works as a human statue in Paris. Elsa is going through a difficult time in her couple. Mao is chronically depressed. Life could not be better… Their parents are of no help either: their father is always absent and their mother is far too present. The siblings can’t wait to leave but their grandmother has a last wish. She wants them to take her one last time to Saint Julien, in the countryside where they spent their summers as children… It’s only dealing with their own past and trauma, that Gabrielle, Elsa and Mao will be able to re-invent themselves.

Ugly Melanie

Directed byAllan Mauduit , Jean Patrick BENES

With:Chantal Lauby,Marilou Berry,Pierre François Martin-Laval


An ugly girl is constantly being mocked by everybody. Her supposed “best” friends, three hot and very mean girls, make fun of her behind her back. Her hypochondriac mother uses her like a lackey. Her boss treats her like shit. Even her grandmother makes her feel like a doormat. Until the day she decides to act as ugly as they say she is: no more Miss Nice Girl! It really takes a butt-ugly girl to kick some serious ass!
The most successful “first feature” of 08 at the French box office. Word of mouth has been outstanding.
