| Lighthearted and uplifting treatment of a serious subject
This film makes a fun comedy out of the serious issue that social services tend not to be so keen on mixed race adoptions - and in this case, particularly where the baby is white.

The acting from all the cast is very strong. If I were to look for faults, I'd have to say that rather too much of the weight of inner conflict is settled on the shoulders of a single character - Claire Mallet. Doing this, I suppose, helps to keep the plot "tight", but at times it does make her motivations a little hard to accept. But don't worry. Just enjoy the story.

Unfortunately, as they get excited - which they do - the French gets a little difficult for some of us - and the subtitles start to flash up and dissappear very fast. So in terms of improving your French - this film is definitely not for beginners.
