Trois Couleurs

"Born as a Father, which tenderly follows nine months of waiting, comes at the right time to give grist to the current debates".

Nouvel Obs

"The chronicle of an obstacle course full of shared affection, filmed with great discretion and sensitivity". 

Noémie Luciani, Le Monde

"An indispensable film to enrich and temper the debates of the moment".


"An intimate, strong, delicate road movie".


Bound by a civil partnership for 13 years, Jérôme and François have been speaking about their desire to have a child since the beginning of their relationship. After an extremely challenging amount of paperwork that has led them from adoption to mere coparentality, they had almost given up any hope of founding a family when they saw, two years ago, a documentary on surrogate mothers. Ever since that day, they regained hope and decided to go back to their quest of fatherhood.
