Diverciné - 9 mois ferme

(9 Month Stretch)

DiverCiné : les écrans de la Francophonie du monde

Diverciné logoAriane Felder est enceinte ! C’est d’autant plus surprenant que c’est une jeune juge aux mœurs strictes et une célibataire endurcie. Mais ce qui est encore plus surprenant, c’est que d’après les tests de paternité, le père de l’enfant n’est autre que Bob, un criminel poursuivi pour une atroce agression ! Ariane qui ne se souvient de rien, tente alors de comprendre ce qui a bien pu se passer et ce qui l’attend...

Poster art for 9 mois fermeOne of the French box office’s top films of 2013, 9 Month Stretch is the simple story of 40-year-old, unmarried, high-powered judge Ariane Felder (Sandrine Kiberlaine, winner of this year's César for Best Actress) who lets her hair down at the firm’s New Year’s Eve party only to discover six months later that she is pregnant. Not only is she unable to remember what happened on the evening in question, she has no idea who  the father of the child is.  Worse yet, eventually a DNA test reveals he is Bob Nolan (Albert Dupontel, who also directed the film and wrote the César-winning screenplay), an ex-con who was recently arrested on a grisly murder charge and goes by the name of the ‘eye gobbler’.

From this extremely unlikely scenario, Dupontel has crafted a hugely enjoyable, high-energy comedy held together by his chemistry with Kiberlaine and a storyline which is both outrageously funny and surprisingly touching.
