La chasse aux papillons (1992) AKA Chasing Butterflies


The lives of the affluent residents of an exclusive town in the French countryside converge at a chateau owned by Marie-Agnes de Bayonette, a feisty, physically disabled woman, and maintained by her elderly cousin, Solange. When de Bayonette dies suddenly, cultures and personalities clash as an international cast of characters — including real estate vultures, bargain hunters and numerous distant cousins — descend upon the chateau.
