Cours Toujours

Set against the backdrop of the Pope’s August 1997 visit to Paris, when tens of thousands of Catholic Youth were mobilized, this comedy rises to the level of religious allegory. Jonas is a professional bar-mitzvah entertainer, he plays keyboards and is in love. After the birth of his first child, Jonas’ stable world plunges into chaos. Because their family is of mixed Sephardic and Ashkenazi heritage, he and Julie are unsure of which ritual to observe for their son’s bris. Finally, they decide to follow a North African custom and, three days after the bris, Jonas must bury the foreskin.

“An intelligent comedy, extremely well-acted”
“A French comedy about the difficulty of maintaining ancient Jewish traditions in a modern non-Jewish society”
