‘A Christmas Tale’ is another portion of Arnaud Desplechin’s movies that depict struggles, and unending family problems. It is a perfect example of the many issues that require fixation in families and how many go about it. However, it maintains a constant focus that surely captivates everybody. The film introduces us to Junon Vuillard (Catherine Deneuve), the confident matriarch who governs a network of children. The network also includes her grandchildren, plus in-laws. Among the peculiar characters, there are those who are alcoholic, mentally unstable, the successful ones, and the quarrelsome ones. The movie illustrates notable parts of their private lives and their role as part of Junon’s monarchy. The film is ultimately less about how this heavy-weight family copes with its struggles that certainly threatens their bond. The film also depicts how the extended network actually plays part in creating distance in the family. Apart from the general family matters, the individual players also have to deal with their private matters that are mostly left uncovered. Arnaud’s film is a startling immersion into a modern world with its matters and it also generally revolves around family chaos!
