Just to Be Sure (Blayney Film Club)



Presented with the support of the French Embassy and the Institut Français.

When Erwin, a bomb disposal expert in his mid-forties, accidentally discovers that his father is not his biological father his world is turned upside down.  As well as tracing his dad he has to juggle his daughters unplanned pregnancy and his aspiring relationship with the sparky local veterinarian Anna, whom, it turns out may or may not be his sister!

Director: Carine Tardieu. Main characters: François Damiens, Cécile de France

Just to Be Sure is the kind of intelligent and rather artful French comedy that doesn’t come around so often nowadays. Tardieu juggles lots of heavy issues with a supremely light touch, making us laugh about what would normally be a series of tragic events…
-Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter
maintaining a tone of witty naturalism that accommodates some touching moments as well as the broader humor….
-Denis Harvey, Variety
…a heart-warming comedy that throws a small batch of fantastic lines at us in every scene, which did not fail to hit home in the cinema of the Théâtre Croisette (Cannes).
