Storyline

Erwan, an unshakable mine-clearing expert, suddenly loses his footing when he learns that his father is not his father. Despite all the tenderness he feels for the man who raised him, Erwan discreetly sets out to learn more about and to find his father. He turns out to be an elderly and very endearing man named Joseph, who Erwan becomes fond of. 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, Erwan realizes that Anna 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 Movie Reviews

Some lovely performances make this odd rom-com well worth your time.
24 October 2017 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Erwan has a very unusual job...he runs a company along the French coast that disposes of buried munitions. It seems that with the billions of shells and mines cast about the area during WWI and II, even today these are many dangerous bombs being uncovered. But this difficult job is easy compared to what he's in for next. You see, Erwan has just learned that his father is not his biological father and his mother was apparently pregnant with another man's baby when she married. And, with Erwan's daughter pregnant now, he feels a strong need to find out more about his roots. So he pays a private detective to investigate...and soon she gives him a name of a man living only 10 miles away who is his biological dad. But what is he to do about this? After all, he loves his father and doesn't want to hurt him by looking for his biological father. And, to make things worse, he meets a woman and falls for her...only to find that she is the daughter of the man who he thinks is his biological father! She wants Erwan...and Erwan wants her...but she might just be his sister!!

The film is packed with lovely performances. Despite these folks not being big-name actors, they are all terrific. And, you can only assume that the director was in top form and the story gave them a lot with which to work. Well worth seeing!
