L’amour qu’il nous faut follows a French lawyer in her forties (Fleurot), who longs for a baby, on a business trip to Tangier in Morocco. When an illegal Nigerian immigrant leaves a white baby in the lawyer’s arms while she’s asleep and then flees, our protagonist goes in search of the child’s mother with the help of a humanitarian doctor (Nyqvist). 

“I wrote the storyline on the back of real events. A few years ago I went to Tangier and lived with illegal immigrants. At one point, I was with a woman who placed her baby in my arms. That really moved me. This is a very bright, humanistic film, with an essential message: motherhood creates a universal link”, the filmmaker explained to Cineuropa.

“When you read it, the storyline is very striking. It carries you forward, moves you. The film has an impressive energy to it. Over the next few months we will be making something with a life force of its own, added the producer Laura Briand for Les Films d’Ici 2.

Co-produced with Stone Angels, filming for L’amour qu’il nous faut will start at the end of 2015 in Paris and Morocco, with Romain Winding (who won a César Award for Best Cinematography for Farewell, My Queen [+see also:
