le-fils-de-jean

Un film de Philippe Lioret

Cast: Pierre Deladonchamps, Gabriel Arcand, Catherine de Léan

English: The son of Jean 

At thirty-three, Mathieu does not know who his father is. One morning, a phone call informs him that he was Canadian and he just died. also discovering that he has two brothers, Mathieu decides to go to the funeral to meet them. But in Montreal, no-one has  knowledge of his existence neither seems to want to know …

Starting from Mathieu, without a  father and  family,  is diving into in the middle of a new family , Philippe Lioret knows that antagonisms will be strong and will have a  fertile ground for a rich history. Of course, this kind of story of the son who finds a father he has never known is neither rare nor new, but the treatment here makes all the difference. It is much in the unsaid whether voluntary (Pierre Mathieu and hiding the brothers Mathieu) or involuntary, and many surprises punctuate the narrative, reviving the interest of the viewer could easily blunt face a slice of life that do not necessarily concerned. Pierre Deladonchamps is remarkable in this film as well as the Canadien Gabriel Arcand who  adds up emotions through his character adding the tenderness and the sensibility of the story. The dialogue are so good here that the emotions run high toward the end that make it so rich an fun to watch.
