A movie: Pupille / In safe hands


I have been learning French on the really good online course for the last seven months,  it is very good. As an addition to the language course I try to see at least one French movie per week. 

I watched the movie Pupille / In safe hands  ...  I loved it. I have never seen a story about an adoption portrayed so beautifully. 

I loved one sentence from the movie so much. The social worker said: "I don't find kids for hurting parents. I find the best possible parents for kids in difficulties.". 

This movie made me realize... how hurt I was when we stopped with all the infertility treatments. And how many years had to pass before I found peace in my heart again.  And when I found that peace, I am way too old to adopt (not that this is in my/our plans now). 

I recommend the movie.


  1. It sounds lovely! Watching foreign language movies is such a good way to learn languages. Thanks for reminding me! (I really should be using this time to brush up on my language skills, in the hope that I will be able to travel again in my lifetime!)

  2. I loved this movie. It is very very authentic and as you say really portrays adoption beautifully.
    Looking forward to discussing it with you in French ;)

  3. Wow, that preview was really powerful. I bet the movie is really good, but I don't think I can watch it yet... I'm surprised how many different emotions just the preview stirred up. It looks really well done though. <3

    That's awesome that you're learning French! I love how you know so many languages.
