Storyline

Forty-something Erwan works as a bomb-disposal expert, clearing explosives and mines that have been buried in the Gallic soil since WWII. While such a job has its share of risks, Erwan's personal life is much more of a minefield: His daughter Juliette is pregnant, but doesn't know - and doesn't want to know - who the father is. Meanwhile, a DNA test reveals that his own dad Bastien is not who he says he is, sending his son off on a quest to find the real one. After consulting a private detective Cécile, he learns that his actual father, Joseph, lives only a few towns away. As good things come in pairs, Erwan crosses paths with the elusive Anna, who he undertakes to seduce. But one day when he pays Joseph a visit, he realizes that Anna, a veterinarian is in fact his half-sister. This bomb is even harder to defuse because his adoptive father now suspects that Erwan is hiding something from him. Written by lament

Just To Be Sure - Is That You Pop? '17
24 May 2019 | by krocheavSee all my reviews

French comedy with some rather wry social comments on modern morality (intended or not) With a good script this movie weaves its merry way to an involved but satisfying conclusion. Director, co-writer Carine Tardieu gets delightful performances from her top line cast - with more than able support from Belgium born Francois Damiens (Les Cowboys '16), Cecile de France( Monique La Roche in Around the World in 80 Days '04) Veterans; Guy Marchand (Father #1?) and Andre Wilms (Father #2?) everyone works hard to bring this tale to life. At times it looks as if it's about to head into cliché country but thankfully the writers stop short of playing it for cheap thrills. The theme of a man searching for his biological father and the complicated avenues traversed to locate 'dad' are handled with warmth, humility and a pleasing degree of self respect. Photography is stylish with local coastlines and colour being well utilised - in lesser hands this could have easily ended up just another ribald situ-farce but maintains its aim above the waistline to prove worthy of sophisticated adult audiences. Good thoughtful fun.
