PRESS REVIEW - Sophie Letourneur's burlesque comedy convinces the press with its “hilarious” actor duo and the questions it raises.



Claire Girard (Marina Foïs) is an internationally renowned pianist whose agent is her own husband, Frédéric (Jonathan Cohen), a handyman, funny and caring.

But Frédéric suffers from not having children.

By dint of replacing his pill with a sweetener, Frédéric manages to have a child behind Claire's back.

Nine difficult months follow for the mother-to-be.

This fantasy deconstructs the fantasies of enchanted pregnancy and confronts taboos, sometimes in a harsh manner.

Catherine Balle du

sees

Énorme as

a "

farce as improbable as it is hilarious."

But while remaining funny until the end, the film quickly turns into an ultra-realistic and detailed account of the pregnancy

This singular mixture is a strength since it allows "

to sow multiple questions on maternity, fatherhood, the relationship to the body of pregnant women

this fantasy deconstructs the fantasies of the enchanted pregnancy and confronts taboos, sometimes crudely.

The feature film is more than a well-written, well-performed comedy about childbirth.

But Sophie Letourneur's fourth feature fails to convince everyone, including Fabrice Leclerc in

Paris Match

.

This story of a reverse convade tries to shock the bourgeois with blows of trash humor and desecration.

But the trash quickly becomes vulgar and the characters anesthetized.

"Less aggressive, Thomas Baurez of

Première

has the feeling that the film"

looks like an end to end of short programs from before JT.

An impression reinforced by the desperately flat photo of the film and beyond a certain stripping down in the frame, by the few staging ideas to be put in their mouths.
