Nous irons tous au paradis, translated as "We Will All Go to Heaven" in English, is a French comedy movie from 1977 directed by Yves Robert. It is the sequel to the 1976 movie Un éléphant ça trompe énormément and has Jean Rochefort, Claude Brasseur and Guy Bedos reprise their roles as three middle-aged friends.

The movie revolves around the three men who have now entered their forties and are dealing with mid-life crises. Rochefort plays Étienne Dorsay, a happily married guy who has an affair with a young woman named Martine, played by Françoise Dorléac. Meanwhile, his best friend Antoine, played by Brasseur, is also going through a tough time as he tries to deal with the fact that he is getting old. He starts to feel insecure about his abilities and is scared that his wife will leave him for a younger man.

Their other friend, Daniel, played by Bedos, is a successful writer, but he has an unusual problem - he suffers from writer's block and can't seem to finish his book. The three friends support and rely on each other for advice and comfort. They all make jokes and tease each other, but when it really matters, they are there for each other.

The movie's light-hearted tone and witty dialogue make it an enjoyable watch, but what sets it apart is its realistic portrayal of middle-aged life. It is a movie that explores the nuances and complexities of human relationships in a true-to-life fashion. The characters are relatable and genuine, and the acting makes them feel like real people.

The film is full of little details that add to its charm. The way the characters interact with each other, the situations they find themselves in, and the choices they make are all endearing. The soundtrack of the movie is also noteworthy, with toe-tapping melodies and classic French chansons that resonate with the movie's tone.

One of the highlights of the movie is Jean Rochefort's performance as Étienne. The actor brings depth and nuance to his character, and his portrayal of a man in a mid-life crisis is both funny and poignant. He captures the complexities of a man who loves his wife but is tempted by a younger woman. Brasseur, on the other hand, does an excellent job of playing the insecure Antoine, and his performance is a reminder that everyone, no matter how confident they may appear, has their own insecurities. Bedos plays the role of Daniel, who is the most successful of the three but has his own struggles. He showcases the character's vulnerability and portrays him empathetically.

Overall, Nous irons tous au paradis is a light-hearted and enjoyable movie that captures the complexities of middle-aged life. It is a sequel that stands on its own and is just as enjoyable as its predecessor. The film is an excellent example of French cinema and is a must-watch for anyone who enjoys witty comedies and relatable human stories.
