A treasure chest of ideas! This is iStudio’s most distinctive feature.

Over the years iStudio has accumulated a solid experience in audiovisual production while producing numerous hours of magazine and documentary shows which aired in many countries. If we count all the years of experience of our associates and collaborators, we’ve been in business for 250 years. iStudio, serving the audiovisual industry since 1757! A sense of humour is one of our other distinctive features. It is scientifically proven that laughter is the best medicine against stress and contributes to greater longevity.

Film synopsis: 
At 65, Pierre MARTIN (played by Pierre RICHARD), quantum physicist, inherits an inn in Canada from his aunt. He leaves Paris with his daughter Catherine (Sylvie TESTUD), an ambitious fashion journalist, and ends up in the dead of winter in Sainte-Simone-du-Nord, a typical tiny village in the Saguenay, a remote region of Québec. Away from Parisian life, Pierre sees an opportunity to pass on to his daughter the quality he values most: happiness. The allegorical vision of life in this cute little village quickly turns into a nightmare for some. The mayor of Sainte-Simone (Rémy GIRARD) endured Jeanne the French aunt for over fifty years. It is now out of question that he will do the same with a second generation of frenchies.
