Born out of a nursery rhyme composed almost by chance, C'est la vie is the first short film by director Simone Rovellini, and it is all but an ordinary short film.
Movies usually tend to tell a story, pursue an idea, or express emotions. C'est la vie just aims at taking up a challenge: using as many French words as possible to describe the bizarre habits of a girl named Henriette. And if at the end of the narration you'll find a moral lesson, well, that's going to be a total coincidence.

The production was carried out discontinuously by a group of young and passionate individuals, and took almost two years of weekend filming, in nearly 30 different locations.
The final result is a rush into French clichés.
It's a pleasant divertissement.
A thorough dossier on the life of a young maitresse.
An ensemble film, with a lot of suspense.
A boutade.
