Description

FATHER OF MY CHILDREN

Artist. Mentor. Love of my life.

Grégoire Canvel (Louis-Do de Lencquesaing) has it all – a wife and three delightful daughters he adores and a stimulating job that he’s devoted to; he’s a film producer. Discovering new talent and developing projects is what drives and fulfills him.

On the surface Grégoire seems invincible, maintaining humour and charm as he juggles the never-ending demands of his company with his domestic responsibilities. But passion can also lead to obstinacy, and when Grégoire’s reserves – financial and emotional – reach a dramatic tipping point, his beautiful wife Sylvia (Chiara Caselli) and children share in the repercussions…

Winner of the Special Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, director Mia Hanson-Løve’s compassionate drama reaffirms her status as one of the most exciting young talents to emerge from France in recent memory. Engaging, restrained and profoundly moving, Father Of My Children offers a rare insight into the joys and challenges of family life, yet is also a must-see experience for anyone with an interest in – or love for – the world of cinema.
