Denis Patar is an affectionate father, but with an excess of work, who struggles just to get his daughters forward, Janis 13 years old and Mercredi 9 years old. One night he forgets to pick up one of them at school and a social worker is given the task of investigating the functioning of the Patar family. Denis is forced to take a "paternity course" to avoid losing custody of his daughters. An endearing portrait of an unusual family.
I happened across this on a air Canada flight and only watched it as there was nothing else I hadn't seen. Glad I did. A very touching portrayal of a family with issues and how they struggle on. I don't wish to give away the plot but the acting is first class - the daughter with the tic is outstanding. I don't speak French so I watched with subtitles but it stil had me in tears a couple of times. Any parent who watched it and doesn't at least get a lump in there throats isn't being a parent at all. Brilliant
