Celebrate the French mother’s day with « Enormous » : one of the funniest and most realistic portrayals of pregnancy we’ve seen in a long while. Limited tickets – book yours now ❗️
Claire is a famous pianist whose life is managed by her husband Frederic, who also acts as her agent/coach/minder. For the sake of Claire’s career, both have decided not to have children; but Frederic changes his mind and tampers with her birth control pills so that she becomes pregnant. – Synopsis
« Foïs and Cohen’s relationship is “Énorme’s” triumph; they play each other’s foils wonderfully and naturally allow for the humour to come through » – Screen Queens
« Énorme bends expectations, genders and couple dynamics in unexpected, weird and tender ways. Claire rediscovers a body she has neglected and a sense of freedom. Frederic lives his wife’s pregnancy more than by proxy: gaining weight, attending courses for expectant moms and ‘feeling’ her pain. It’s in its most absurd moments that the film tackles womanhood the best. » IFFR

With her film, Letourneur made the invisible visible: the misogyny and the cringey heteronormativity of everyday life.
