A HAPPY EVENT

by Rémi Bezançon

synopsis

Barbara, a young graduate student, is madly in love with her boyfriend Nicolas and deep into writing her thesis when she learns she is pregnant. Reeling from the initial shock, Barbara alter­nates between excitement and trepidation. Amidst a flurry of congratulations, she tries in vain to conform to the image of the happy expectant mother, but is instead exasper­ated by the tedious yogic breathing classes, and finds herself complaining to her girl­friend about her suffering sex life. Once her baby is born, everything becomes alarmingly real. She’s faced with a helpless little being who needs everything from her — love most of all. But despite the support of those around her, including that of her devoted partner, Barbara struggles to con­nect with her child.
