Synopsis/Résumé du film

Le film raconte l’histoire d’un homme, Zino, qui retrouve son père, Farid, après la morte de sa mère. Zino réalise que son père est devenu Lola, une femme. Critique de film sur Télérama: “Bien que prévisible, un film subtil et touchant aux interprétations remarquables. Fanny Ardant fait des merveilles. Mon père, cette héroïne.”

After the death of his mother, Zino sets out to find his father, Farid. Zino soon realizes that his father became Lola, a woman, 25 years prior. Film review from Rotten Tomatoes: “The path from resentment to reconciliation may be well-worn but it is traveled with a good deal of charm and sensitivity in Lola Pater.”
