gets a new look !
Take a happy couple who want to have a baby but the husband is sterile. Add the husband's best friend. Then add the fact the couple decides that to hell with anonymity, vanity and prejudice; the best friend will be the donnor ! And what do you get ? "Les Deux papas et la maman", a family comedy full of conflict, wacky situations and unexpected twists and turns.
"In twenty years, we have gone from maximum sexuality with minimum procreation to the opposite, maximum procreation with minimum sexuality..." Those word by Jean Baudrillard inspired "Les Deux Papas et la maman". During the first screenings, we were pleasantly surprised by its impact on children. I remember one little boy in particular, aged five or six, when the lights came back on, turned to his mother and asked :
"Mom, did you need a friend to make me ?"
"No, dear, your father was enough", his mother retorted immediately. We realized then that we had gone beyong comedy to strike a sensitive chord. And while a child's desire is a major preoccupation, parent's desire is another matter entirely."
