France | 2014 | 91 minutes | Pascal Rabate

October 26, 2014

Christian is a divorced father who can only see his young daughter Vanessa every other weekend. When he meets the single mother Christine and decides to participate in a summer TV show, his whole life is turned upside down. 

By turns touching and hilarious, Pascal Rabaté has made a sensitive, bittersweet comedy that plunges to the heart of crisis-riddled provincial France, carried by the excellent Sami Bouajila.
