Sweet Nirvana, the restaurant, is screening a French movie (dubbed in English) titled 48 Heures Par Jour (48 Hours A Day) on 20th September, at 8pm.
48 Hours A Day is a comedy that attempts to make light of a serious social issue, the need for couples to balance the competing pressures of work and family in a world where employers expect their staff to harder and harder. Marianne (Aure Atika) is determined to make a success of her career in advertising, but unfortunately, her ambitions look set to be thwarted by her high-flying husband, Bruno (Antoine De Caunes), who expects her to look after their children and take on all the household duties. Out of desperation, Marianne contrives a plan to force Bruno to shoulder his fair share of their domestic arrangements.
She tells him that her employer is sending her to Tokyo for a few weeks, while in reality, she intends to stay in Paris. Bruno is not happy with this news but he isn’t prepared to show his wife that he cannot cope.
The movie, directed by Catherine Castel, has a runtime of 89 minutes, with Aure Atika and Antoine de Caunes in the lead roles. Catherine Jacob, Aurore Clement and Yves Jacques are the supporting cast.
