''And They Got Married and Had Many Kids" (Ils se Marierent et Eurent Beaucoup d'Enfants) by Yvan Attal!

The original French title of ''Happily Ever After" translates to ''And They Got Married and Had Many Kids." That's colloquially about the same as fairy-tale cliché, ''they lived happily ever after," but the English title carries a sting that writer-director-star Yvan Attal doesn't quite intend. Everyone may be miserable in this funny, ribald, unexpectedly profound tale of married Parisian yuppies, but the joke and the tragedy is that they don't have to be. This is my favourite extract from this movie - it's so kind, so simple, so sweet so....joyful that you admire this couple, because you understand: "Yeah, this is it - happiness!"


  1. And I ask you: who will clean that?

  2. ohhh come on :) it's so romantic and you want to simplify it by cleaning :)))))
