Directed by Luc Besson, The Family is an entertaining film with very few shortcomings. Most notably, the subtitles (only appearing early on) are a bit difficult to read. That aside, the movie is about an ex-mob family (It is implied that Robert Deniro's character is the real life (Henry Hill ((Ray Liota)) from Goodfellas), in witness protection, who relocates a lot because they cannot seem to break their mob habits, and currently find themselves in Normandy, France. From revenge, extortion, expecting and demanding respect, theft and shakedowns, their children, Belle and Warren (Dianna Agron and John D'leo, respectively get in their share of trouble "trying" to adjust to the local culture. Which is driving their handler FBI Agent Robert Stansfield (Tommy Lee Jones), crazy, in that he's charged with moving them every 90 days or so.
Seeing Belle and Warren's mob/Godfather-esque antics in the high school setting is invaluable in its own right.
All the while they are being relentlessly pursued by the mob boss who he sold out.
The back and forth between Giovanni and his wife is also highly entertaining, most notably when they try to counter one another's hijinks.
In the inevitable showdown between the mob's “button men” and the FBI and the family, there is a lot of drama, tension and comic relief.
Overall, this is an entertaining film.
At the close, I would like to thank Epic Theaters for their providing a very amiable theater in which to view this (and other) films and recommend that you go to one of their several local locations for your next cinematic experience.
