Ken Scott’s colourful Québécois comedy follows a middle-aged slacker (Patrick Huard) who’s just been informed that the sperm he once donated has fathered no less than 533 children, many of whom are now suing the clinic to meet their maker. –TIFF
My dad wanted to see this because a co-worker of his told him it was great; so I came along with him. This was completely off my radar and I had never heard of it before. As such I went in completely blind. This was a pleasant surprise and it is genuinely touching.I f you told anyone the premise, they might be skeptical, but you only have to see it to realize how special and great it is. One of the year's best.
Outrageous unlikely - so all the more interesting - premise for the story and personable characters that are easy to warm up to. There's a song by The National on the OST that was an unexpected significant plus.
