Mad love has never lived up to its name so well….

Through the eyes of 10-year-old Gary, we experience the life of a crazy family, where adults have remained children and children become adults too quickly. Gary’s parents, Camille and Georges dance through life to their favourite song "Mr Bojangles", made popular by Nina Simone. They live a life of parties and fantasy, but the whirlwind must stop….and it does.  And when the music finally stops, Camille goes too far, forcing George and Gary to do everything to avoid the inevitable at all costs.

Romain Duris is well cast as George, whose infectious joie d’vivre, creates a life of pleasure, fantasy and friends, with Virginie Efira (Elle, Benedetta) in fine form as his troubled, unpredictable wife Camillie.
