Wicklow People (Arklow) - - WHAT’S ON -

1 C’EST LA VIE!: Mer­maid Arts Cen­tre will screen the film C’est La Vie! on Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 15, at 8 p.m. Max is a veteran wed­ding plan­ner who is think­ing about sell­ing on his busi­ness. For now, how­ever, there’s some­thing more press­ing to worry about: or­gan­is­ing a lav­ish wed­ding in a 17th cen­tury chateau. It’s no small task - there are dozens of peo­ple to man­age, un­re­li­able elec­tric­ity, a last­minute mu­si­cian change, and an in­creas­ingly de­mand­ing groom. Soon, things start go­ing very wrong in­deed. Can Max and his team sort ev­ery­thing out with­out the guests notic­ing? The lat­est film from Un­touch­able di­rec­tors Olivier Nakache and Éric Toledano is a glo­ri­ously manic French com­edy. It hits the ground run­ning and barely takes a breath as wed­ding dis­as­ter af­ter dis­as­ter un­fold. With larger-thanlife char­ac­ters and laugh-out-loud set pieces, C’est La Vie! is a de­light. Tick­ets to the movie are €8.50 or €7 con­ces­sion and avail­able at mer­maid­arts­cen­tre.ie or at the box of­fice, which can be con­tacted on 01 2724030.
