"wonderfully witty, fantastically funny, smart, sharp and incredibly sexy". Movie Chart Show.

A Film by Stephane Giusti. French Film with English Subtitles.


Mothers are always the first to know...


Camille, Eve and Nick are friends who have three things in common: they're all twenty-something, they work together running Lovespace, the Barcelona publishing house they launched, and they're all dependent on Gloria Gaynor's I Will Survive.

Although they're openly gay in their everyday lives, only Camille's mother Josepha knows the truth about them all. She and her daughter decide the time has come for the others to tell their parents, too, and organise a weekend house party for a grand collective coming-out.

Eve, Ariane and Nick, after some initial hesitation, agree to the plan... and Lili, their straight co-worker, who is always asking herself 'why not me?' vis-a-vis her own sexuality decides to join them.

Inevitably, all does not go according to plan. As the revalations begin, the parents are forced to reassess their expectations of, and aspirations for, their children. And it emerges that they have some secrets of their own to air... cue humourously scandalous results.

Stephane Giusti's film is a kindred spirit of early Almodovar tales - it gathers an ensemble of disparate characters and forces them to get to know each other, over fine wine and gnocchi, during an explosively comic weekend in Northern Spain.
