Dad on the Run Details


What do three hitmen, a lost foreskin, and the pope have to do with each other? This wacky French comedy answers this question and many more. Set during the 1997 papal visit to Paris, 23-year old father Jonas ([[Performer~P239581~Clemont Sibony~clémentsibony]]) is given his son's foreskin in a wad of tissues after the bris and solemnly told to bury it in three days without fail. Three days later, Jonas suddenly remembers his sacred duties while playing keyboards at a bar mitzvah and tries to leave. Unfortunately, the bar mitzvah boy's father comes to believe that Jonas has been flirting with his drunk and buxom wife Sophie ([[Performer~P136177~Emmanuelle Devos~emmanuelledevos]]) and orders him murdered by three of his crack hitmen. Later, when Jonas tries to comfort Nina ([[Performer~P230470~Rona Hartner~ronahartner]]), a Romanian hell-bent on seeing the pope, he unwittingly gives her the exact wad of tissues that contain the foreskin. Tracking down Nina and finding a suitable place to bury the foreskin in the urban scrawl of Paris proves to be no easy task. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi
