This rapier-sharp comedy of social manners from French auteur Agnès Jaoui (The Taste of Others) stars Jaoui as an overbearing feminist writer angling for a political career. Jaoui’s longtime collaborator, Jean-Pierre Bacri, plays a self-aggrandizing documentarian eager to interview her at her childhood home. And with the always wonderful Jamel Debbouze (Days of Glory) as an aspiring filmmaker who’s the son of an Algerian housekeeper, Jaoui neatly, gently, firmly slips political commentary into Let It Rain’s articulate mayhem. She also teases tender humor out of sibling rivalry, church ritual, fussy parenting, and the conversational limitations of bachelor farmers. A
