Join FIAF on a cinematic journey into the offbeat charm of the Larrieu brothers. Reigning from the southwest of France, where most of their films are situated, Arnaud and Jean-Marie Larrieu have been writing and directing films together for over three decades. The popular duo are best known for their eccentric comedies that almost always include beloved French actor, Mathieu Amalric. The seven rarely screened comedic romances, dramas, and thrillers featured in the series transport audiences to faraway places, meeting some of the most memorable characters along the way.
