Father of My Children
Directed by Mia Hansen-Løve • 2009 • France
Starring Louis-Do de Lencquesaing, Chiara Caselli, Alice de Lencquesaing
Grégoire (Louis-Do de Lencquesaing), a Parisian film producer, has it all: a beautiful wife, three adorable daughters, wealth, and a buzzing career. On the surface he seems invincible, maintaining humor and charm as he tirelessly juggles the demands of his production company with his family’s needs. But when Grégoire’s reserves—both financial and emotional—reach a dramatic breaking point, his family’s love and resilience is tested. Winner of Cannes’s Un Certain Regard special jury prize, FATHER OF MY CHILDREN is a trenchant portrait of a family in crisis that announced the arrival of Mia Hansen-Løve as one of contemporary cinema’s most remarkable voices.
