) is also among the main actors.

The story, written by Cédric Kahn with contributions from Fanny Burdino and Samuel Doux (who previously worked with the filmmaker on The Prayer), revolves around a group of family members who get together one summer’s day to celebrate their mother’s (Deneuve's) birthday: her husband (Artur), her two sons, one (Kahn) accompanied by his wife (Colombani) and their two little boys, the other (Macaigne) with his brand-new fiancée, a video camera in order to record the day for posterity, and a young, 18-year-old girl who seems to have grown up there. All seems to be calm and cheerful until the unexpected arrival of the younger sister (Bercot), who disappeared four years prior. Although she is hailed as a heroine, she is about to sow the seeds of chaos...

Produced by Sylvie Pialat and Benoît Quainon for Les Films du WorsoHappy Birthday will have a budget of €5.35 million, including co-productions by France 2 Cinéma, Tropdebonheur Productions and Belgium’s Scope Pictures. Having been pre-purchased by Canal+ and Ciné+, the feature is also being backed by the Cofinova, Cinéventure, Cofimage, Cinémage and Cinécap Soficas, as well as by the Procirep. The shoot will take place from 19 June-2 August in the Lot-et-Garonne department of the Nouvelle Aquitaine region. The French distribution will be handled by Le Pacte, while Elle Driver is in charge of the international sales.
