). They are joined by comedian Grégoire Ludig (who has already dabbled in the world of cinema, including in Babysitting [+see also:

), Vincent Furic and Mélanie Malhère.

Written by the director, the story revolves around Pierrick (Grégoire Ludig), who is still feeling emotional after his brother’s recent disappearance. And so why not accept an invitation from Tessa (Géraldine Nakache), his best friend, to head over to her family home and spend a week there on his own, reflecting on his life?
 However, when he gets there, Pierrick finds that the house is already occupied by Marie (Virginie Efira), Tessa’s half-sister, who has come there to nurse a broken heart.
 After a booze-fuelled evening, followed by the sudden arrival of Tessa herself, the trio will progress from awkward situations to unexpected revelations...

Produced by François Kraus and Denis Pineau-Valencienne for Les Films du Kiosque (which staged the director’s previous movie), Et ta sœur? is being co-produced by Direct Cinéma. Having been pre-purchased by OCS (Orange Cinéma Séries) and D8, the film, which is also being backed by the Manon and La Banque Postale Image Soficas, will be distributed in France and abroad by Le Pacte.

On 10 December, Les Films du Kiosque will launch Qu’Allah bénisse la France [+see also:
