Film 1st July 2012 (AFS)

The Father of My Children (Le père de mes enfants)

7pm Sunday 1st July 2012

Dir. Mia Hansen-Løve / 2009 / French - subtitle | 110 mins | 12

In the first half, Gregoire, a movie producer of great charm, owner of Moon Films, plays with his younger daughters, talks with his wife and his eldest daughter, and tries to keep his studio going while one project hemorrhages money and creditors circle. In the second half, Sylvia, his Italian wife, tries to hold the family together as she looks fully into Moon Films' troubles. She meets with a banker, a temperamental Swede, Russian TV magnates, a film lab exec, and Moon's lawyer. Clémence, the oldest daughter, goes on her own search. Debt can crush; how does a family pick up the pieces?
