1986 Rated R 1hr 41m

Nine friends gather for dinner, but the evening deteriorates when they start talking about their sexual activities -- some with people gathered at the table. Director Denys Arcand deftly explores the subjects of infidelity, marriage and sex in this ribald yet rueful Oscar-nominated movie. Stars Remy Girard, Dorothee Berryman, Pierre Curzi, Genevieve Rioux, Louise Portal, Gabriel Arcand, Yves Jacques, Dominique Michel and Daniel Briere.
