A Christmas Tale

When steely French matriarch Junon (Catherine Deneuve) learns she has leukemia, she asks her children and grandchildren at the family Christmas gathering to see if they are eligible to become bone marrow donors. This causes deep friction in the family, especially between Junon's daughter Elizabeth (Anne Consigny) and son Henri (Mathieu Amalric), who already have a tumultuous relationship. Their mother's sickness also recalls the traumatic loss of their brother Joseph when they were children.

(no rating) Nov 21, 2008 - Chicago Tribune

What a lovely, vinegary holiday film we have in "A Christmas Tale," from the French writer-director Arnaud Desplechin. It's a simple picture about complicated people, the members and sometime-combatants of the extended Vuillard family, whose home base is a capacious old flat in the northern French city of Roubaix.
