Le prénom (Comédie)

Vincent , la quarantaine triomphante, va être père pour la première fois. Invité à dîner chez Élisabeth et Pierre (Charles Berling), sa soeur et son beau-frère, il y retrouve Claude , un ami d'enfance.

En attendant l'arrivée d'Anna (Judith El Zein), sa jeune épouse éternellement en retard, on le presse de questions sur sa future paternité dans la bonne humeur générale... Mais quand on demande à Vincent s'il a déjà choisi un prénom pour l'enfant à naître, sa réponse plonge la famille dans le chaos.


Vincent, a real estate agent and father-to-be is invited for dinner by his sister Elisabeth and his brother-in-law Pierre. Their childhood friend, Claude, is also invited. Vincent is a wealthy, successful capitalist, while Pierre, a university professor, is much more liberal. When Vincent reveals the name of his future son, his hosts are horrified. The situation eventually gets out of hand, when no one can come to an understanding, and everyone starts unearthing old rivalries and unspoken issues.
