Father of My Children

Adding to the surprisingly short list of good films about film, Father Of My Children focuses on one of the lesser examined industry positions, the producer. Grégoire Canvel (Louis-Do de Lencquesaing) is a man on the go. With at least one mobile phone glued to his ear at all times, he is never far away from the deal.


His production company creates art house films with smaller budgets but no fewer headaches and Grégoire struggles to keep everything in his life, both business and private going. Even with an adoring family and professional respect, he has a darkness and self-doubt that takes him over.

The film’s structure is distinctly split into two halves. The first half is about Grégoire and the second half is about his family. There is an incident in the middle that splits the film into these two parts and gives the audience more than a moments pause in relating to the producer’s self-centered lifestyle.

The acting is faultless and the film’s pacing, while being slow and deliberate, gives the main actors the chance to really develop their characters and the focus shifts to a number of different leads. The film does present some challenges though and the most substantial of these is not dismissing Grégoire out right as being so self involved he fails to see how much good their actually is in his life.
