Other People’s Children (Les enfants des autres)
A superb Virginie Efira plays Rachel, a dedicated high school teacher who begins a bittersweet romance with a single dad. Deftly written, directed with a light hand, the film captures moments of acute sadness without ever sinking into sentimentality. It delicately balances humor with melancholy, creating a sharply observed relationship drama that explores maternal instincts and midlife crises with bittersweet compassion.
“Other People’s Children is romantic — tender, sexy, very French …. With delicacy and with a sympathetic if unsentimental gaze, Zlotowski has gathered together the story’s seemingly disparate, charming and aching pieces … and turned these fragments of life into a life, one that’s as worth living as it is worth watching.” ~Manohla Darvis, NYT
