Let it Rain

Overview

Many regard the satirically inclined writer-director-star Agnès Jaoui Le Goût des Autres as a European equivalent of Woody Allen.

Overview

Many regard the satirically inclined writer-director-star Agnès Jaoui Le Goût des Autres as a European equivalent of Woody Allen. The cerebral comedy Let It Rain represents Jaoui's third effort in the said capacities, and finds her juggling preoccupations with gender politics and class differences. Here, she plays Agathe Villanova, a feminist author with political plans who heads off to the summer residence of her early years to address some unfinished family business with her sister, Florence Pascale Arbillot. Once there, her path crisscrosses with two documentarists shooting a film about powerful women -- Karim Jamel Debbouze and Michel Jean-Pierre Bacri, Jaoui's off-camera husband and creative partner, who co-authored the script with her. She agrees to be interviewed for the film, leading to a series of arguments between Karim and Michel about how best to film her; meanwhile, Agnes offers to help Karim out by setting up a job for him, little recognizing the complications that this will yield.
