A Zeitgeist Films release

A sweet and hilarious fusion of gay romantic comedy, Jewish family drama and French bedroom farce, Mikael Buch’s Let My People Go! follows the travails and daydreams of the lovelorn Ruben (CALL MY AGENT' Nicolas Maury), a French-Jewish gay mailman living in fairytale Finland (where he got his MA in “Comparative Sauna Cultures”) with his gorgeous Nordic boyfriend. But just before Passover, a series of mishaps and a lovers’ quarrel exile the heartbroken Ruben back to Paris and his zany family—including Almodovar goddess Carmen Maura (WOMEN ON THE VERGE OF NERVOUS BREAKDOWN, VOLVER, THE WOMEN ON THE 6TH FLOOR) as his ditzy mom, and Truffaut regular Jean-François Stévenin as his lothario father. Scripted by director Mikael Buch and renowned arthouse auteur Christophe Honoré (LOVE SONGS),LET MY EOPLE GO both celebrates and upends Jewish and gay stereotypes with wit, gusto and style to spare. The result is deeply heartwarming, fabulously kitschy and hysterically funny.
