It's Easier for a Camel... Details


A wealthy but dysfunctional family teeters on the brink of collapse in this emotional drama leavened with a strong dose of dark comedy. Federica ([[Performer~P9175~Valeria Bruni-Tedeschi~valeriabrunitedeschi]]) is the daughter of a wealthy Italian business magnate ([[Performer~P31924~Roberto Herlitzka~robertoherlitzka]]) who relocated himself and his family to France in the 1970s, after a wave of kidnappings among the rich and prominent led him to fear for their safety. Years later, Federica and her siblings -- brother Aurelio ([[Performer~P76764~Lambert Wilson~lambertwilson]]) and sister Bianca ([[Performer~P196947~Chiara Mastroianni~chiaramastroianni]]) -- still feel lost and disconnected, and with their father on his death bed, they each confront their feelings in their own way. Emotionally distant Aurelio plans a long and expensive vacation, while Bianca is in a sour mood that refuses to lift. Federica, who is attempting to establish herself as a playwright, tries to focus on her work, but she finds herself romantically torn between her current beau, down to earth Pierre ([[Performer~P1807~Jean-Hugues Anglade~jeanhuguesanglade]]) and her former lover Philippe ([[Performer~P197442~Denis Podalydes~denispodalydès]]), who despite his infatuation with her can't tear himself away from his wife and child. Il Est Plus Facile Pour un Chameau... was the first feature film from [[Performer~P9175~Valeria Bruni-Tedeschi~valeriabrunitedeschi]], who wrote and directed the film as well as playing Federica. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
