Gregoire a parisian film producer, has it all. On the surface he seems invincible maintaining humor and charm as he tirelessly juggles the demands of his product company. But when he reahcs a dramatic breaking point, his familys love and resilience is tested and their world is forever changed.
Editor's Note
A family is forced to learn a painful lesson about the man of the house in this drama from director Mia Hansen-Løve. Grégoire Canvel (Louis-Do de Lencquesaing) is an independent film producer who runs a well-respected production company, Moon Films. For Grégoire, to work is to live, and while he loves his wife, Sylvia (Chiara Caselli), and their three daughters, Clemence (Alice de Lencquesaing), Valentine (Alice Gautier), and Billie (Manelle Driss), during the week he's practically a stranger to them. Grégoire makes a point of spending each weekend with his family at their cottage in the country, but even then separating him from his cell phone is all but impossible, and Sylvia and the girls are reaching the end of their patience with Grégoire and his obsession with work. Though there's no question that Grégoire is devoted to Moon Films, he's kept a secret from Sylvia and his daughters about the state of the company, and it's not until a sudden, desperate act forces Sylvia into leadership of the company that they come to understand the real reasons behind his unrelenting schedule. LE PÈRE DE MES ENFANTS (aka THE FATHER OF MY CHILDREN) was an official selection at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival, where it was screened as part of the "Un Certain Regard" program.

4 stars out of 5 -- "Director Mia Hansen-Love marshalls the two-phase narrative with aplomb, crafting a subtle, soul-filled tale that draws you in like a warm embrace." 08/01/2010

Box Office
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "De Lencquesaing perfectly embodies the dashing, persuasive and unmistakably Gallic impresario of Moon Films..." 05/19/2010

Chicago Sun-Times
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "The film's second half is the most touching, because it shows that our lives are not merely our own, but also belong to the events we set in motion." 05/26/2010

"[Hansen-Love's] camera is attentive and watchful, following her characters at a respectful but distinctly interested distance; it's a technique that creates a solid bond with a series of highly enigmatic characters without compromising their mystery." 05/26/2010

Los Angeles Times
"[A]n extraordinarily empathetic humanistic drama, a film of love, joy, sadness and hope that understands how complex our emotions are and does beautiful justice to them." 05/21/2010

New York Times
"[P]oignant, startling....What makes the film so affecting is that it's also a love story about a family." 05/28/2010

A.V. Club
"THE FATHER OF MY CHILDREN is largely about how life drifts by, and how we don't always leave the mark in the world that we'd hoped..." -- Grade: B 05/27/2010

Wall Street Journal
"The choice of a closing song is deliciously daring, and the cinematography, by Pascal Auffray, is sharp-eyed and radiant..." 05/27/2010
