Un conte de Noël - A Christmas Tale it's not! Another very French movie - family tensions, sibling rivalry, sex, life, death, Catherine Deneuve - it's all in there! Not very uplifting. But more depth than Les Petits Mouchoirs, which seems to have become my yardstick for movies these days! And also a very different vibe - a town in Northern France in winter (vs the sunny South in the summer (try say that quickly!)).
