Watch My Father's Guests - Alternative Versions.
I think you have to go pretty far back in time to get Hollywood
versions of this type of comedy, like the banter in Girl Friday. This
comedy in the French style revolves around class issues, albeit subtle
ones in this case. Here, an old battle-scared socialist doctor marries,
unbeknown to his own bourgeoisified children, a beautiful but blowsy
Moldovan refugee to help her get her papers. He becomes besotted, and
she exploits him just a bit too much for his children's taste and
settled values. Everything revolves around the tension this creates in
the children's lives, but through the tension and even vicious
infighting, there are a lot of great lines and insightful psychology.
Tatiana's déclassé manners and image at first even loosens up the
uptight children, but when daddy disinherits them to provide for his
spring bride's future, things fall apart. The ending (which I won't
reveal) is a bit weak, but the rest, especially the dialogue and the
sparkling acting by everyone involved are just wonderful. Of course,
French films and their humour often revolve around this style of
acting, where the actor embodies a Commedia dell'arte-style stereotype,
except here it's a class and not a gender or sexual identity (this is
France, not Italy). That's the hard part to translate to American
audiences, first, literally in the subtitles and also in the larger
sense, when Americans try to remake these French classics. How can one
bring class tensions into the picture and make them meaningful to
American audiences without falling into the parody of Trading Places
(remember, Dan Ackroyd is a Yalie because he has a "posh" accent, and
Eddie Murphy is street because, well, because he's Eddie Murphy) ?
That's the part that often takes these movies beyond the comedic and
into bittersweet truths. This is a great movie and definitely worth
finding it, though I can't vouch for how it's subtitled (saw it in
