The festival will open with “It Happened in Saint-Tropez”, the new comedy directed by Danièle Thompson which was co-written by Thompson and Christopher Thompson.  The film is centered on a family who have to host a funeral and marriage on the same day, brewing up domestic conflicts while opening the door for forgiveness and love.  The film stars Kad Merad, Monica Bellucci, Lou de Laâge and Eric Elmosnino.
