The brothers ,yes! Lola ,no!
Lola (see the prologue) has always been a second mom to her two brothers who are probably older than her. These two siblings are played by the director (Jean -Paul Rouve )and Jose Garcia ;both outshine the bland couple Ludivine Sagnier/Ramzy Bedia.

The former is an optician whose problems with English cause him problems with the color of the spectacles : his customers have little choice: peas-green, spinach-green ,green bordering on purple(?) The latter is dismissed and he tells his posh boss a few home truths before leaving his office.His scenes with his son could have been cut ,the movie would not have suffered for it,but every time he meets his sibling,there's a wonderful chemistry between them :their reaction to sister's great event is memorable :they pull a disapproving face when they learn she is in love (and they know she will not be only theirs) :the have excuses : the new boyfriend epitomizes the French feel good scene : highly educated, clever, eating with chopsticks ,in a nutshell :perfect .And Lola is not better :a lawyer (in the" feel good" French movie,this is par excellence THE woman's job) ,who laughs up her sleeve when a crude woman (from the working class) insults her husband ,a scene which sounds distastefully bourgeois .

We'd love to see both brothers teach a thing or two to this self-satisfied self-assured buck.

But we can relate to them ,because ,unlike their brilliant sister ,they are like us : sometimes brooding,sometimes playful ,often mischievous ,together through life .Stand by them.

All the songs are in French! bravo!
