En épousant Sarah, une viticultrice de St Emilion qui a déjà eu deux maris, trois filles et dont le premier amour est aujourdhui le mari de sa propre ex-femme et le beau-père de sa fille, Jean ne se doutait pas quil allait devoir passer le réveillon de Noël avec toute la tribu. Ce qui napparaissait déjà pas comme une sinécure va alors se transformer en cauchemar, quand Sarah va lui offrir son premier cadeau : elle porte leur enfant...
Ce que Sarah ignore, cest que son mari est stérile. Et pour cause : il ne lui a pas dit quand il se sont rencontrés, de peur de la perdre. Il connaissait en effet son désir davoir un dernier enfant et na pas osé lui avouer sa condition.

I don't really what to say about this strange movie. First, it looks more like a play as it's a Christmas Eve with several couples reunited in a mansion. Like mostly all movies based plays, the pace is slow, dull and very talkative so in other words, not very cinematic! Next, if it's a comedy, it's not funny and it's a drama, it's too stupid. The characters are really disparate as we have the usual French bourgeois with a detective and a rap singer! My biggest disappointment is that the Christmas season is only a pretext as the spirit of this holiday never taints the movie. It's maybe about families but it's not familial and for those who think it's a French vision of "Christmas vacations" or "home for the holidays", well, it's not. Geraldine does a good job as a wife, ex-wife, mother but we are faraway of having her in an engaging movie.
