Just To Be Sure

“The comedy favourite of Cannes. Invigorating and intelligent.”
Pierre Vavasseur, LE PARISIEN

“Light-hearted, sharp and funny, the kind of French comedy that doesn’t come around so often nowadays. A charming tale of multiple quid pro quo.“

“An easygoing comedy with delectable dialogue and characters, carried by a superb cast. Steeped in a light-hearted and good-natured spirit, much to the delight of the viewer, this heart-warming film throws a batch of fantastic lines at us in every scene, which do not fail to hit home.“
Bénédicte Prod, CINEUROPA

The breakout comedy hit of the 2017 Cannes & French Film Festivals, writer/director Carine Tardieu’s feel-great romance JUST TO BE SURE is a winning tale of parenthood, love and family, both lost and found.

When lonely 45-year-old widower Erwan (the remarkable François Damiens, The Bélier Family) discovers by accident that that man who raised him isn’t his real father, he begins a search for his biological one. Thanks to a local private detective he soon locates the mischievous, 70-something Joseph (Le Havre’s Andre Wilms), whom it seems his mother may have known briefly. Erwan soon falls not only for his charm, but that of the impetuous Anna (a radiant Cécile de France), who has ties to them both. But the conflicting loyalties become compounded by the pregnancy of his own daughter (Alice de Lencquesaing), who defiantly refuses to name the father… very soon Erwan’s families begin to collide, to unexpected, hilarious and moving effect.
