Father of My Children

The poignant, startling French film “The Father of My Children” opens with a whoosh of activity. A financially struggling independent-movie producer, Grégoire Canvel (Louis-Do de Lencquesaing), is driving through Paris, trying to keep the different parts of his life in play. He’s talking — he’s always talking — taking one call after another with a cellphone cradled under an ear. But what he’s really doing is juggling, a tricky proposition, given that he’s holding a cigarette in one hand, carelessly tending to the wheel with the other hand, while a stream of bad news from his creditors and various projects pours into his ear like poison.

Grégoire, a Parisian film producer, has it all — a beautiful wife, three adorable daughters, wealth and a buzzing career. On the surface he seems invincible, maintaining humor and charm as he tirelessly juggles the demands of his production company with his family's needs. But when Grégoire's reserves — both financial and emotional — reach a dramatic breaking point, his family's love and resilience is tested.

Winner of the Un Certain Regard Special Jury Prize at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival and featured at the Toronto and London Film Festivals, THE FATHER OF MY CHILDREN is an extraordinarily perceptive new drama from emerging young talent Mia Hansen-Love, and a deeply moving portrait of family in tumult.
