Just to Be Sure is the kind of intelligent and rather artful French comedy that doesn’t come around so often nowadays. Tardieu juggles lots of heavy issues with a supremely light touch, making us laugh about what would normally be a series of tragic events… -Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter
…maintaining a tone of witty naturalism that accommodates some touching moments as well as the broader humor…. –Denis Harvey, Variety
…a heart-warming comedy that throws a small batch of fantastic lines at us in every scene, which did not fail to hit home in the cinema of the Théâtre Croisette (Cannes). – Bénédicte Prot CineEuropa
Presented with the support of the French Embassy and the Institut Français.
