In the wake of her mother's death, feminist author Agathe (Agnès Jaoui) returns to the rural town of her birth to reconnect with her estranged sister, Florence (Pascale Arbillot). While there, Karim (Jamel Debbouze) -- a would-be filmmaker and son of the family maid -- requests permission to profile Agathe for a documentary about inspiring women. Agathe agrees, but soon finds herself at the lens-end of a camera manned by Karim's mentor, the misogynistic Michel (Jean-Pierre Bacri).

  • Let It Rain touches on class issues, feminism, immigration and the particular challenges facing a single, driven career woman in her 40s. But it's graceful in presenting its ideas, and what emerges is not a polemic but a kind of snapshot of modern-day concerns. show more

  • This beautifully strange and affecting comedy, which Agnès Jaoui directed from a screenplay she wrote with her husband, Mr. Bacri, is about men who are weak and insecure, and one woman, Agathe, played superbly by Ms. Jaoui, coming to terms with the price of being strong. show more

  • At times Let It Rain recalls one of those Katharine Hepburn comedies where the New Woman gets cut down to size so as not to intimidate the Old-School Men. Yet the film so likably deflates the pompous and pumps up the humble that it's hard not to like. show more
