It was supposed to be a nice evening among childhood friends, but when Vincent announces the plan to name his son Adolphe, the mood is tense. A discussion about moral boundaries and the question of when a joke becomes tasteless breaks out. Some well-kept secrets are revealed.
LE PRÉNOM is based on the theatre play of the same name by the two directors and is a classic chamber play. Nonetheless, the five main characters don’t just sit at one table and talk. The film also has a lot to offer in cinematic terms. It never loses its entertainment value, but still doesn’t become undemanding; it raises questions, but without providing the answers immediately. A French comedy par excellence! (Anna, Damir, Garbiel, Joshua)
