Let my people go ... straight to this movie! While delivering mail in the idyllic countryside of Finland, Ruben (Nicolas Maury) is given a package stuffed with Euros by a panicky old man. His partner Teemu (Jarkko Niemi) doesn’t believe his story and promptly throws him out of his house. This sends Ruben on a plane back to France to visit his Orthodox family, just in time for Passover. From here on out, everything becomes topsy-turvy. His father is having an affair, his brother is a temperamental hot-head, his sister is married to a gentile that nobody likes, his mother is convinced he’ll cease being gay if he finds the right woman, and the older, hot-to-trot family lawyer is in love with him. Maury is perfect as the faith-questioning and constantly misunderstood Ruben, and the movie dazzles as it sways back and forth between tenderness and hilarity.
