Other People's Children

Rachel is 40 years old, no children. She loves her life: her high school students, her friends, her ex, her guitar lessons. When she falls in love with Ali, she becomes attached to Leila, his 4-year-old daughter. She tucks her to bed, cares for her, loves her like her own. But to love other people’s children is risky.
Rebecca Zlotowski’s fifth feature, Other People’s Children, premiered in competition at the 2022 Venice Film Festival and impressed audiences with its deeply moving and acutely observed portrait of one woman’s fluctuating feelings around maternal instincts and societal pressures. Rachel (a dazzling Virginie Efira) is a happy, 40-ish-year-old schoolteacher who loves her life, her friends, her job, and even her exes. She is exploring the idea of having a child but is not desperate to have one. She is intrigued by the concept, ambivalent about it at times — an authentic encapsulation of the conundrum many women around her age face. When Rachel meets a charming divorcé, Ali (Roschdy Zem), she falls not just for him, but also for his little girl, Leila. With things progressing quickly in this new family dynamic, Rachel has to wrestle with some complicated feelings around maternal longing and the fear of missing out on what she describes as the “collective experience” of motherhood. You may not see it coming, because of Zlotowski’s gentle, unaffected tone, but Other People’s Children is likely to break your heart.

IndieWire
B+ “Other People’s Children” feels, to put it bluntly, delightfully French.
