characterized by narrow cobbled streets andmedieval gates. At its heart, Cathédrale Saint-Pierre de Vannes blends Romanesque and Gothic styles, while Place des Lices square is lined with colorful timber-framed houses.

About the Film:  "JUST TO BE SURE"

Starring:  François Damiens, Cécile De France, Alice de Lencquesaing, Guy Marchand

The Festival has been honoured to present the World Premieres of some superb French jewels in past years and 2017 is no exception with the world debut screening of writer-director Carine Tardieu’s wonderfully funny Just to Be Sure.

When 45-year-old widower Erwan (the fabulous François Damiens, The Bélier Family, AF FFF15) discovers by accident that the man who raised him isn’t his real dad, he begins a search for his biological father. He soon locates the mischievous, 70-something Joseph (André Wilms, Le Havre, 2011), whom his mother knew briefly. Erwan falls not only for his charm, but that of the impetuous Anna (Cécile De France, La Belle Saison, AF FFF16), who has ties to them both. The conflicting familial loyalties soon become compounded by the pregnancy of his own daughter Juliette (Alice de Lencquesaing), who defiantly refuses to name the father.

Offering a terrific showcase for her brilliant ensemble, Tardieu (The Dandelions, AF FFF13) proves her skill at depicting the joys and complications of family connections and romances, both new and old, with this hugely entertaining and moving new film.

French with English subtitles.
