Adieu Berthe - L'Enterrement de Meme (Granny's Funeral)


Synopsis

In the midst of a full-blown midlife crisis, Armand navigates haphazardly between his job as a chemist and his passion for magic. Where matters of the heart are concerned, he's torn between his wife Hélène and his mistress, Alix. And as for family life, what with an interfering mother-in-law, the kids with whom he can no longer communicate and Alix's daughter, whose birthday is quickly approaching, Armand doesn't know which way to turn… And then his grandmother Berthe dies, and he's landed with the extra task of arranging the funeral. It's too much for Armand, who finds himself forced to confront a profound existential question: do we burn Granny, or bury her?
