The Belier Family

1h 41m Comedy, Drama, Music 2014

Remade as the 2022 Best Picture Oscar-winner, “Coda”, this heart-warming French original tells the story of a hearing-impaired couple who’s teenage daughter displays a remarkable flair for music.

In the Bélier family, sixteen-year-old Paula is an indispensable interpreter for her deaf parents and brother on a daily basis, especially in the running of the family farm. One day, a music teacher discovers her gift for singing and encourages Paula to audition for the prestigious Maîtrise de Radio France music college in Paris, which will secure her a good career and a college degree. However, this decision would mean leaving her family and taking her first steps towards adulthood.

“An impressively handled if conventional comedy-drama.” ~ Peter Calder, NZ Herald.
