A Happy Event 2011

     Nic works at a video rental store and Barbara rents movies from the store.  Nic wants to ask her for a date and his co-worker keeps pushing him to ask her but he’s shy.  They show each other film titles expressing their different sides of the dating issue.  They do being seeing each other, rent an apartment together and decide to have a baby.  Everything starts to change before Lea arrives but it really changes after she is born.
     This is very realistic about how life is different after having a baby.  Barbara is asleep at the table for breakfast and Nic complains when workers come early on Sunday to fix the refrigerator.  Characters you can relate to, a believable and everyday story without a sugar coating.   3 ½*

107 min, Drama directed by Remi Bezancon with Lousie Bourgoin, Pio Marmai, Josiane Balasko, Thierry Fremont, Gabrielle Lazure, Firmine Richard.

Note:  Blockbuster 2 ½*, imdb 6.2 out of 10, 52% audience on Rotten Tomatoes.
