(THE MORNING AFTER)
Fed up with her cheating husband, Louise, 45, takes off for a weekend in Corsica. But after a wild night of unbridled passion with a man who winds up dead, Louise is unwittingly mistaken for his secret, longtime girlfriend by his Corsican fearsome but loving mother.
Forced to play along by the other son, who invented his dissolute brother's mythical girlfriend to reassure their mother, Louise agrees in order to dodge suspicion. But as her “mother-in-law” becomes increasingly attached to her, Louise discovers more about herself than she ever thought possible… and gains an unlikely family in the process.

Miou-Miou and Alexandra Lamy form a sparkling duo in this spicy and charming comedy.
— Télé Loisirs (translated from French)
Aided by a well-crafted scenario and by dialogues that hit the mark, Alexandra Lamy is having a lot of fun. We enjoy seeing her struggling with a Corsican family in mourning as she is determined to regain control of her life. Miou-Miou, in total denial, is perfect in the role of the invasive, hilarious and touching mother. There is a wonderful chemistry between the two actresses and it is a pleasure to see them together.
— La Voix du Nord (translated from French)
A wacky and spirited comedy led by Alexandra Lamy.
