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

Sooooo sweet
6 January 2018 | by zictebanSee all my reviews

An explosion of feelings and emotions in this "dramedy" subtly written and perfectly played by a great cast. Highly touching movie, as the humanity of all the characters is nicely developed as the movie goes on. A main key of this sweet movie is as you get into it, you can not avoid merging it with your own life and family memories or happening. Whatever your own family issues may be, you are just bound to believe how deep and necessary this mess might be. Watching this movie may thus trigger regret or satisfaction depending on your own situation. There is also an intriguing absence all along: mothers' ones. Indeed, although various families' lives are depicted, none of them includes the crucial figure of the mother, dead for some, away for others ... Besides, fathers' personalities, despite their own weaknesses, have in common their strong humanity arousing sympathy for all of them. How to understand this very specific and compelling plot? I guess only screen writers, one of them being also the movie director, hold the keys to fully understand what can probably be linked with personal matters.
