Skinflint husband in a generous act

French film ‘La Maison Du Bonheur’, a film on a miserly husband who at last decides to be generous to his wife will be screened at 3 pm on January 26 and at 6.30 pm. January 27 at the Alliance Francais.

The film marks an auspicious directing debut, that of Dany Boon, a popular celebrity in France, who has pursued a twin-track career as actor and singer, as famous for his one man shows and film appearances as for his crooning.

Working for a credit agency, Charles Boulin has come to realise the value of money. Unfortunately, neither his wife Anne nor his daughter appreciate his meticulous management of the household budget and to them he just a skinflint. So, to prove them wrong, Charles decides to offer his wife the most extravagant present he can imagine - a large house with a garden, just fifteen minutes from the centre of Paris. No sooner has he bought the house, paid for with a 25 year mortgage, he loses his job. Worse, to make the house habitable, he has to spend all of his savings to have it repaired.

Luckily, Mr Draquart, the estate agent who sold him the house, knows a pair of competent, fast-working builders who will make the necessary repairs at a fair price.

Unluckily, Charles hasn’t yet realised that the words uttered by estate agents have only a tenuous relationship with the truth and his dream house soon begins to resemble a battle zone. Unable to find work and with his debts spiralling out of control, Charles has no choice but to sell his apartment, hoping that his wife will not find out until the day of the move.

Once again, Mr Draquart is there to lend a helping hand, and make Charles’s misery well and truly complete... The film originated from a 2003 stage play entitled ‘La Vie de chantier’ which Dany Boon wrote and starred in.
