Storyline

Loic and Seb are a couple living in Paris's gay district, the Marais. Seb is the owner of the district's most trendy, chic and camp nightclub. It's a world devoid of judging eyes where the clientele can be themselves. Things are just terrific. What's more, Loic's dream of transmitting his heart and soul to another human being is about to come true: he's going to be a father. He gave his sperm. Things are just terrific. Marie Haguette, their accomplice, is offering them this gift, the most beautiful gift that two gay guys could receive: a baby! She's three-months pregnant, that dicey moment when things could go wrong... Maybe this is why Loic has morning sickness, contractions and cravings... "It's a common phenomenon among fathers expecting their first baby," the doctor they've called in a panic explains. Phew. Things are just terrific. Except for love, Love with a capital L of course, upsets the pie-cart. Marie falls madly in love with Charles, a wonderful stranger, but at least he's...

surreal happening
18 November 2006 | by (St. Petrograd, Russia) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie in theater in the first week of its release, with about only three other patrons in a huge theater. One reason for this lack of interest from mainstream public could be related to the fact that this this movie CELEBRATES GAYNESS, quite literally and at length at times. Saying this, I cannot be sure that it was the only intention of the creators. If such kind of agenda is irrelevant to you, it could be quite interesting as an absurdist happening kindathing. There is a great scene with a "turk" pianist. Transplanting the female lead from "Pedale Douce" is another ioneskian bit, this is not a sequel by any stretch of imagination. So, if you have some spare time on your hands it is not so bad to spend it on this piece, however such things are usually only good for fresh "shock and awe" showing, I doubt I would enjoy watching it again.
