Just to be Sure

French romantic comedy about a widower, his search for his biological dad, a conflicting romance, and a sudden pregnancy.

"When 45-year-old widowed munitions expert Erwan (François Damiens) discovers by accident that the man who raised him isn’t his real dad, he begins a search for his biological father. He soon locates the mischievous 70-something Joseph (André Wilms), whom his mother knew briefly. Erwan falls not only for his charm, but that of the impetuous Anna (Cécile de France), who has ties to them both. Conflicting familial loyalties soon become further compounded by the pregnancy of his own daughter Juliette, who defiantly refuses to name the father…" (Alliance Française French Film Festival)

The film, in the fine tradition of Sautet's movies, throws up serious questions along the way, the principal one being the role of the father.

In her third feature, director Carine Tardieu and her co-writers build a muted classical comedy of errors that Shakespeare would have recognised.

A charming tale of multiple quid pro quos that's as light-hearted as its subject matter is deadly serious.

De Lencquesaing lends her character an appealing earthiness. De France is good, too, as the tart-tongued medic with an overdeveloped sense of responsibility.
