User Reviews

 
Excellent comedy with delirious touches and superb acting from the leads
7 April 2020 | by adrianovasconcelosSee all my reviews

9 MOIS FERME opens with a preposterous charge against Alibert Dupontel of cutting a man's limbs and gouging his eyes out. Even more outrageously, a prim and proper judge (Sandrine Kiberlain) falls pregnant and learns that she, usually a withdrawn, sober and sexless judge, actually actively sought sex during a drunken New Year's night, and the sperm donor was none other than the eye-devouring monster Robert Nolan (Dupontel).

Despite some touches bordering on the delirious, the film manages to retain a respectful approach to the issues of maternity and paternity, and its heart is in the right place, largely thanks to a masterly direction by Dupontel, who also acts as the male lead.

Top notch photography, very unusual comic screenplay.

Strongly recommended.
