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 Reuben (Regular Lovers, Nicolas Maury), a French-Jewish gay mailman living in fairytale Finland with his gorgeous Nordic boyfriend. Just before Passover, a series of mishaps and a lovers quarrel exile the heartbroken Reuben back to Paris and back to his zany family including Almodóvar goddess Carmen Maura (Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, Volver) as his ditzy mum, and Truffaut regular Jean-François Stévenin as his lothario father. Scripted by director Mikael Buch and renowned arthouse auteur Christophe Honoré (Love Songs), 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 fun.
