The Castillons seem like the perfect family. The father, Laurent (singer Philippe Katerine), is a doctor working from home. The mother, Annie (Alexandra Lamy) is a happy housewife and mother, whose whole life revolves around their four endearing children: two brilliant and sensitive older sons, Max and César, and a teenage daughter, Poupi, who helps her mother take care of the youngest sibling, Antoine, still a toddler.
One day, Annie discovers a positive pregnancy test in their bathroom. But who does it belong to? Their son César’s girlfriend? Their teenage daughter? Another woman in her husband’s life? Does their other son Max actually have girlfriends? Whatever the answer, there is no good news…
And now Annie, who thought she had everything under control, is seeing her seemingly perfect life start to unravel, for better and for worse.
In this charming comedy, Alexandra Lamy, one of France’s funniest actress, portrays a mother so involved in her role that she forgets to be a woman, and refuses to accept that her kids are growing up. Her husband, the always fantastic Philippe Katerine, is also a pleasure to watch.
