The feel-great film of the year!

A captivating new star is born in THE BÉLIER FAMILY, Eric Lartigau's fabulous, heart-felt comedy hit about a young girl whose close bond to her hearing-impaired family is challenged by the discovery of an extraordinary talent for music.

In the Bélier family, everyone is deaf, except dutiful sixteen-year-old Paula (beautiful newcomer Louane Emera). She acts as an indispensible interpreter for her parents and younger brother, especially in the running of the family dairy farm.

Though her salt-of-the-earth father (François Damiens) has decided to run for mayor spurred on by her vivacious but over-involved mother (indelibly portrayed by Karin Viard) Paula's attentions are very much elsewhere. She's witnessed the handsome new boy at school sign up for the choir, and impulsively joined too. It's not long before her music teacher (Éric Elmosnino) discovers her considerable talent, however his encouragement only exacerbates the matter of Paula's independence.

Building to a heart-soaring and emotional finale, THE BÉLIER FAMILY is a feel-great triumph. Emera, making her screen debut after being discovered on the French edition of The Voice, is a genuine revelation she lends both sincerity and joy to this deeply moving film that has become a word-of-mouth phenomenon.
