GIFTS & GIVEWAYS…
Celebrating the end of the year with a series of gifts and giveaways for our readers. A virtual Christmas party and our way of saying thank you for your love and support over the past 6ish years, as well as a further opportunity to showcase some of our favourite people, products and places in the process.
Movie passes have always been my quick and easy go-to for last minute gifts, no matter what the occasion but especially at Christmas time. There’s always a fab line up of movies on offer from Boxing Day and a trip to the cinema is a great way to escape the summer heat here in Perth. Not that it seems to have arrived on time this year.
JUST TO BE SURE
My pick of the boxing day movie release bunch, is the breakout comedy hit of the 2007 Cannes International Film Festival JUST TO BE SURE. An enchanting tale of parenthood, love and family, both lost and found.
When lonely 45-year-old widower Erwan (the remarkable François Damiens, The Bélier Family) discovers by accident that that man who raised him isn’t his real father, he begins a search for his biological one.
Thanks to a local private detective he soon locates the mischievous, 70-something Joseph (Le Havre’s Andre Wilms), whom his mother knew briefly. Erwan soon falls not only for his charm, but that of the impetuous Anna (a radiant Cécile de France), who has ties to them both. But the conflicting loyalties become compounded by the pregnancy of his own daughter, who defiantly refuses to name the father… very soon Erwan’s families begin to collide, to unexpected, hilarious and moving effect.
Offering a terrific showcase for her brilliant cast, director Carine Tardieu skilfully weaves a wholly-entertaining exploration of human relationships, coincidence and love. Few films manage to pluck both the heartstrings and the funny bone as well as JUST TO BE SURE. It’s a delight.
