Simon and Theodore (Simon et Theodore) France / 2018

“Endearing and captivating.” — Filmdoo

Simon Wesier is a loving husband to Rivkah, a rabbi who is eight-and-a-half months pregnant. But how can this young, fanciful and emotionally wounded man take care of a child when he can’t even take care of himself? An encounter with Théodore, a cantankerous adolescent who’s never known his father, will give Simon the chance to reflect upon his imminent fatherhood. In the course of one night, these two rebels will end up sharing a funny and touching existential journey.
