THE FATHER OF MY CHILDREN

THE FATHER OF MY CHILDREN

FILM CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE
RETURN
Wonderfully reminiscent of Truffaut's Day for Night in its evocation of the world of European cinema, Mia Hansen-Løve's (Things to Come, Eden) The Father of My Children won the Jury Prize at Cannes in 2009. Grégoire (Louis-Do de Lencquesaing) is a happily married father of three and an independent film producer who somehow manages to juggle the never-ending demands of his company with his domestic responsibilities. Glued to his mobile and chain-smoking his way through meetings and crises, he maintains his sense of humour despite the incessant demands of his work. In addition to massaging artistic egos and keeping one step ahead of his bank, he reluctantly joins the family on an Italian holiday, but on his return, Grégoire finds he can no longer maintain any sane work/life balance. ★★★★ "Utterly unsentimental, its energy somehow both busy and serene" - Tim Robey, The Telegraph ★★★★ "Agonising in its truth" - Kate Muir, The Times ★★★★★ "An outstanding, undemonstrative family drama about depression" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
