Storyline

Manu, a gay pediatrician in his forties, would be perfectly happy if he could adopt a child and bring him or her up with his partner, Philippe, a lawyer. Where the shoe pinches is that Philippe is pleased with his present life and will not have it spoiled by the invading presence of a wailing brat. Unable to find an agreement the two lovers part. Manu, although shaken, is single-minded about finding a surrogate mother, willing to give him the child he craves. Fina, an Argentine beauty trying to get a job, but held back because of her lack of immigrant papers, might do the job for him in exchange for a marriage of convenience. However, as Blaise Pascal would put it, "The heart has reasons that Reason cannot know". Written by Guy Bellinger

this film is sterile!
3 May 2009 | by (Bangladesh) – See all my reviews

I don't usually write comments after watching a film. But mid-way through this film, i decided that i must warn those who want to spend money on this. The film has great looks. It's got very nice cinematography. There are good looking people inside. But there's no passion in it. It's simply...sterile. There was no heat in it, heat that comes from human elements. The story, the relationships, the touch, everything is almost 'too' perfect.So much so that it seems cold.It's very hard to connect with any of the characters in any way. Also, the story is quite predictable. If you have never watched films about homosexuality or gay adoption, you might find the lack of heat comforting.Otherwise, you might want to avoid it. i considered the movie a waste of time.try 'patrick 1.5' or 'get your stuff.'
