This is a funny, deeply affecting and often painfully truthful movie about families, parenthood, growing up, growing old and dying, devoid of any cynicism concerning the horrors of family life.  It covers five days between 1988 and 2000, each one seen from the point of view of a member of the Duval family -- the taxi driver Robert, his pretty wife Marie-Jeanne, and their children, Albert, Raphal and Fleur

In 1988, Albert, a medical student, leaves the nest to live in the attic of his overbearing widowed grandfather. On her 16th birthday, Friday 3 December 1993, Fleur loses her virginity and rows with her parents. Three years later in 1996, Raphal, a would-be musician, comes to terms with his grandfather and attends his brother's wedding. In 1998, Marie-Jeanne feels rejected and teeters on the brink of adultery. In 2000, Robert takes stock of his career and performance as husband and father.

The film is both simple and emotionally dense, the performances are beyond reproach and almost everyone will find something that relates closely to their experiences.

The First Day of the Rest of Your Life, or five decisive days in the life of a family made up of five people, five days more important than the last, after which nothing will ever be the same the following day.
