Description
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. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

display_descriptionFeminist writer Agathe returns to France to help her sister, Florence, sort out their deceased mother's affairs. While there, Agathe decides to test the political waters and run in a local election. She also agrees to be interviewed for a documentary about successful women by two blundering reporters. As romantic entanglements, class resentments, and the uncooperative weather intrude, Agathe's life hysterically unravels, and the bumbling filmmakers are there to capture it all.
