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

Good fun buoyed by sound acting
13 January 2018 | by adrian-43767See all my reviews

François Damiens was so convincing as the deaf head of family in LA FAMILLE BÉLIER that I had difficulty accepting that he is just as verbal as any normal person, and with excellent diction and capacity to act, to boot. He is very ably accompanied by the rest of the cast, especially the two old folks who might be, but are not, his father. Cécile de France is gorgeous and any man would fall for her in seconds, so it is no surprise that Erwan should do so on sight.

There are the usual complications but the film contains enough good humor to steer skillfully past the more serious issues, the soundtrack is extremely well picked, dialogue is quite sharp (apart from poor Didier, who plays the part of the not so bright father of Erwan's daughter's unborn daughter, and who keeps making mistakes... but is sharp enough to know that he is a loser).

I liked it all, apart from the unnecessarily stretched ending, that ill-advisedly repeated some of the music. Were it me, and I would have resolved the film with the DNA test result and the nearest room in the hospital.

That said, by then I had had plenty of fun and found my money well spent, so I am not complaining. 7/10
