What’s in a Name?

A lively, tongue-in-cheek opening montage introduces the superb ensemble: the snobbish soirée host Pierre (Charles Berling); his schoolteacher wife Élisabeth (Valérie Benguigui); her childhood friend Claude (Guillaume De Tonquedec); Élisabeth’s suave real estate agent brother Vincent (Patrick Bruel); and his pregnant – and perpetually late – wife Anna (Judith El Zein). Initial small talk dissolves into disaster when Vincent reveals the jaw-dropping moniker he and Anna have chosen for their firstborn son (a surprise best discovered onscreen), setting in motion a cascade of hilarious histrionics and rapid-fire revelations.
