Just to be Sure

When Erwin (Francois Damiens), a bomb disposal expert in his mid-forties, accidentally discovers that his father is not his biological father his world is turned upside down. As well as tracing his dad he has to juggle his daughters unplanned pregnancy and his aspiring relationship with the sparky local veterinarian Anna (Cecile De France), whom, it turns out may or may not be his sister!

With strong performances from all the cast this is a joyful tale with some moments that touch on the farcical and others that are genuinly touching. Director Carine Tardieu delivers a warm poignant human comedy about the challenges of being a parent and having one!

‘Just to Be Sure is the kind of intelligent and rather artful French comedy that doesn’t come around so often nowadays. Tardieu juggles lots of heavy issues with a supremely light touch, making us laugh about what would normally be a series of tragic events… ’

The Hollywood Reporter

‘…a heart-warming comedy that throws a small batch of fantastic lines at us in every scene, which did not fail to hit home in the cinema of the Théâtre Croisette (Cannes). ’
