A sweet and hilarious fusion of gay romantic comedy, Jewish family drama and French bedroom farce.

Mikael Buch’s ‘Let My People Go!’ follows the travails and daydreams of the lovelorn Reuben, a French-Jewish gay mailman living in fairytale Finland (where he got his MA in “Comparative Sauna Cultures”) with his gorgeous Nordic boyfriend.But just before Passover, a series of mishaps and a lovers’ quarrel exile the heartbroken Reuben back to Paris and his zany family-including Almodovar goddess Carmen Maura as his ditzy mom, and Truffaut regular Jean-Francois Stevenin as his lothario father.

Scripted by director Mikael Buch and renowned arthouse auteur Christophe Honore (‘Love Songs’), ‘Let My People Go!’ both celebrates and upends Jewish and gay stereotypes with wit, gusto and style to spare. The result is deeply heartwarming, fabulously kitschy and hysterically funny.

“Candy-colored and sugarcoated, Let My People Go!tosses gay stereotypes into a Jewish holiday, adds the bedroom-door-banging beats of French farce, then piles on the dysfunction.” – New York Times

“A bubbly froth of gay camp and comic Jewish hysteria…. Will bring smiles of recognition to anyone who hasn’t seen early Woody Allen in a while.” – Time Out New York

“Cartoonish situations, broad characterizations and color-saturated Pierre-et-Gilles aesthetic amplify each narrative stroke, resulting in a satisfying if not wholly filling bonbon of a film.” – Film School Rejects
