A distressed father of two gets involved in community theater when his wife leaves him in the tender family drama Real Love (C’est ca l’amour). French filmmaker Claire Burger, who also won the Camera d’Or in Cannes in 2014 for "Party Girl", pushes her audience to question what it truly takes to make a home with this moving portrayal of parenting, proving herself once again as a phenomenal filmmaker.
Since his wife walked out on the family, Mario has raised their two daughters on his own. Frida, 14, blames him for her mother leaving. Niki, 17, dreams of independence. Meanwhile, Mario waits for his wife to come home. - Plot
The push and pull is extremely believable, never histrionic, and often moving. Real Love is just the latest evidence of the quality of a young generation of French female directors, all currently hitting their stride. - Screening Daily
