What's In A Name

Summary: Vincent (Patrick Bruel), a successful forty-something, is about to become a father for the first time. His sister Élisabeth (Valérie Benguigui) invites him to a dinner party at her beautiful apartment in Paris, with her academic husband Pierre (Charles Berling) and his childhood friend, Claude (Guillaume de Tonquédec).

Whilst waiting for Anna (Judith El Zein), his stylish younger spouse who is always running late, his cohorts gleefully bombard him with questions on his fast approaching fatherhood. But when his hosts ask Vincent what name he has chosen for his future offspring, his response plunges the family into chaos.

The Other Son

Summary: As Joseph (Jules Sitruk) prepares to join the Israeli army for his national service, tests determine that he is not his parents’ biological son. Revisiting the hospital of his birth, Joseph and his family discovers he was inadvertently switched at birth with Yacine (Mehdi Dehbi), the son of a Palestinian family from the West Bank. Forcing both young men to reassess everything they have come to believe about themselves, their values, beliefs and the race they are a part of, this revelation turns the lives of both families upside-down.
