Le divorce de Patrick

Genre: Comedy
Director(s): Dieudonné



What is the purpose of your visit to Paris?.

To visit my sister. She's having a baby.

She's married to a Frenchman.

I mean, her husband's French.

She's a poet.

You want those berries, huh?.



In the 1 7th century,

well-bred women never ate asparagus.

Especially white asparagus.

Really. It was considered

bad for reproduction.

The Princess de Cleves

would never have had any.


I'll take it anyway.

I love it. So does my husband.

And I'm pregnant.

In any case,

it's still a good diuretic.

Papa! He's home!

Where are you going?.

What's wrong?.

I'm sorry.

Where are you going?.

I'm sorry, Roxeanne. I'll call you.

I'm sorry.

-I'll call you.

-Talk to me.

-No, don't, Roxeanne, no.


No, no, don't. Don't.

-Why are you doing this?.!

-No, Roxeanne!


-Just tell me where you're going.

-I'll call you.

Are you coming back?.

Are you free?.

-Hi, lsabel.


-I'm sorry. I am in a hurry. I have got to go.


I'll see you later.

Looking for someone?.

Roxy de Persand. My sister.

You sound just like her.

Let me help. I'll call her.

Oh. Thank you.

I'll buzz her.

Madame de Persand?.

It's just up there on the right.

Hey, where was Charles-Henri going?.

He went to the country to see

about one of his paintings.

-Well, what do you think?.

-I love the beams in the ceilings.

They look like the ones we have

in Santa Barbara.

Oh, no. Those are the fake ones.

These are the real load-bearing ones.

She looks so much better here

than she ever did at home.

-Papa did that picture.

-He did?.

And he did that one too.

-And he did this one too.


-And that's the two-dog one.

-Two dogs?.

Did Charles-Henri go to the country

to sell a picture or to paint one?.

I'm not sure.

This is the tricky part.

Here it is.

It was a maid's room...

...but these days you have no idea

what a space like this is worth.

And of course, it makes a

wonderful place to work in.

Look at the view.

There's a present for you

in the orange purse.

-This one?.


I hope you're not gonna feel

too cramped up here.

Oh, no.

-It's beautiful.

-You like it?.


Let me put it on you.

Thank you.

I think...

...Charles-Henri has left me.


Did something happen?.

Is he having an affair?.

I don't know what's going on.

I don't even know where he is.

And what am I going to tell his family

at their Sunday lunch?.

You tell them exactly what you told me.

-That he's in the country.

-No, but they're in the country.

If I were to tell my French friends

that Charles-Henri walked out...

...they'd say, "Of course."

The French always say "of course"

to everything.

Like everything is absolutely normal.

I'll never say, "But of course."

There's my brother-in-law, Antoine.

-He's kind of cute.

-You think?.

Anyway, he's married.

Whatever that means nowadays.

We saw a car on fire!

Really?. How dangerous!

Our adorable lsabel!


-Thank you.

Where is Charles-Henri?.

He had to go to the country to see

some people about a painting.

Of course.

Come inside.

Isabel, right here,

next to my brother Edgar...

...called "Palou" in the family.

He'll take very good care of you.

And my son Antoine on the other side.

Charlotte, here.

And my darling Roxeanne next to me.

Oh, what good fortune to have two

such lovely American girls with us today.

And are you also a poet

like your sister Roxeanne?.

Oh, no. Roxy's always been the smart one.

She inherited all of our father's brains.

I'm the poor little half-sister.

Really?. Just like Cinderella.

Dieudonné M'bala M'bala (born 11 February 1966), generally known by his stage name Dieudonné (French: [djø.dɔ.ne]), is a French comedian, actor, and political activist. His father is from Cameroon, his mother from France. He has been accused of and convicted for hate speech, advocating terrorism and slander in Belgium and in France. Dieudonné initially achieved success working with comedian Élie Semoun, humorously exploiting racial stereotypes. He campaigned against racism and was a candidate in the 1997 and 2001 legislative elections in Dreux against the National Front, the French far-right political party that he perceived as racist. On 1 December 2003, Dieudonné performed a sketch on a TV show about an Israeli settler whom he depicted as a Nazi. Some critics argued that he had "crossed the limits of antisemitism" and several organizations sued him for incitement to racial hatred. Dieudonné refused to apologize and denounced Zionism and the Jewish lobby.Dieudonné approached Jean-Marie Le Pen, leader of the National Front political party that he had fought earlier, and the men became political allies and friends. Holocaust denier Robert Faurisson appeared in one of his shows in 2008. Dieudonné described Holocaust remembrance as "memorial pornography". Dieudonné has been convicted in court eight times on antisemitism charges. Dieudonné subsequently found himself with increasing frequency banned from mainstream media, and many of his shows were cancelled by local authorities. Active on the internet and in his Paris theater, Dieudonné has continued to have a following. His quenelle signature gesture became notorious in 2013, particularly after footballer Nicolas Anelka used the gesture during a match in December 2013. Alexander Stille, writing for The New Yorker, characterized his recent appearances and videos as "unfunny", "tasteless" rants in which the "Jewish lobby" and "Israel lobby" are characterized as controlling world affairs.After Dieudonné was recorded during a performance mocking a Jewish journalist, suggesting it was a pity that he was not sent to the gas chambers, French Interior Minister Manuel Valls stated that Dieudonné was "no longer a comedian" but was rather an "anti-Semite and racist" and that he would seek to ban all Dieudonné's public gatherings as a public safety risk. His shows were banned and Aurelié Filippetti even spoke about an effort to get Daily Motion and YouTube to take his videos offline. Dieudonné changed the name of his show (to Asu Zoa) and was packing the house a few months later. On 20 January 2017, the Court of Appeals of Liège confirmed a first instance sentence of two months of jail time and a 9.000 euros fine for Dieudonné's anti-Semitic remarks in a performance on Herstal in 14 March 2012.Dieudonné has also been known to associate with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (President of Iran from 2005 to 2013), who has himself been accused of describing the Holocaust as a myth. On 25 February 2015, Ahmadinejad tweeted "Visiting an old friend, a great artist." The tweet included photographs of himself and Dieudonné, arms around each other, smiling. The two also met in 2009 during a visit by Dieudonné to the Islamic Republic of Iran where they reportedly discussed their shared anti-Zionist views. more…
