France, Belgium. 2020. 108 '. Fiction. VF.
Director: Marie-Castille Mention-Schaar.

Aude and Benjamin love each other and have lived together for 6 years. Aude suffers from not being able to have children so Benjamin decides that it is he who will carry it.

Labeled Cannes 2020 and adapted from a true story, this hopeful humanist film deals with a subject rarely discussed in cinema: the desire for parenthood in trans people. No voyeurism or sensationalism in this poignant work, shining by its authenticity and delicacy. Noémie Merlant, fabulous, delivers a precise, sober, interiorized composition. Very smooth “visceral”, it is not at all in the performance but in the deep feeling. The film also impresses by its way of questioning our dispositions for empathy and for a true understanding of the other, his truth. And thereby questioning the weight of the norm, prejudices, dogmatism and narrow-mindedness.

The screening of Thursday, November 19 will take place in the presence of the film crew.
