Diane has the Right Shape

Clotilde Hesme (Monsieur Chocolat) opts to be a surrogate mother for her best friends in this drama from debut feature writer-director Fabien Gorgeart.

"There is a flippancy to Diane that is put to the test when she falls for a visiting electrician, Fabrizio (Fabrizio Rongione). It is only then she realises her body is as much the property of Thomas and Jacques as it is her own. What starts as a quirky dramedy gets increasingly tense as the moral stakes are raised. However, rather than take a stance on the rights or wrongs of surrogacy, Gorgeart uses his allegory to explore how a seemingly ‘ideal’ situation can become confrontational with new and unanticipated emotional states."
