DVD SPECIAL FEATURES: The Making of The First Day Of The Rest Of Your Life; Theatrical Trailer.

NOMINATED for NINE French Academy Awards and a box office smash hit, The First Day Of The Rest Of Your Life – written and directed by Rémi Bezançon – is an uproarious, uplifting saga which shows you a family that’s just like any other… but in the most unexpected ways you can imagine.

Marie-Jeanne (Zabou Breitman) and Robert (Jacques Gamblin) have three children: Albert, Raphaël and Fleur. Over the course of twelve eventful years, we see five key days as seen through the eyes of each one of these characters.

Five days are crucial in these lonely, vibrant, frustrated, elated and triumphant lives. Five days whose consequences reverberate through this eccentric family like the thunder and lightening of a gathering storm.

These five days are more important than any other day. After you’ve experienced them, nothing will ever be the same again.
