She drove me into a corner, then forced me to go beyond my limits. She made me confront the absolute: love, sacrifice, tenderness, abandonment. She dislocated me, transformed me. Why didn't anyone warn me? Why doesn't anyone ever talk about this?" Un heureux événement, or an intimate view of motherhood, sincere and with no taboos.Written by
This is one the best movies I've seen since a long time! The synopsis says it, this is the essential stuff happening to everybody in daily life but no great philosopher or whoever seems to be able to understand. This film somehow comforted me and triggered me to deal with the last ten years of my life in quite an amazing manner. In modern society the event of birth is so overwhelming in so many positive and negative ways that small isolated families are severely shaken up by it. Post natal depressions should not be rare and affect both members of the couple. Even though the movie is not always that easy to look at, the images, colors, music and humoristic moments, it is all just perfect. I do not see any reason not to give this one a huge ten. Thanks!
