    FILM:  Just To Be Sure (ÔTEZ-MOI D'UN DOUTE)

    OFFICIAL SELECTION – 2017 CANNES INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL – DIRECTORS’ FORTNIGHT
    OPENING NIGHT GALA – 2017 ODESSA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL
    The breakout French hit of the 2017 Cannes International Film Festival, where it premiered in the Directors’ Fortnight to multiple, raucous standing ovations, writer/director Carine Tardieu’s charming romantic comedy JUST TO BE SURE is a winning tale of parenthood, love and family, both lost and found.

    “Rich in comedy and human emotion. This one is for the grown-ups. A movie about the extraordinary lives of ordinary people. Tardieu builds her story with infinite but invisible care.”
    Paul Byrnes, THE SYDNEY MORNING HERALD

    “A thoroughly enjoyable experience for holiday viewing. Filled with amusing details and throwing up serious questions along the way, the principle one being the role of the father. De France, as always, lights up the screen whenever she appears.”
    David Stratton, THE AUSTRALIAN

    “The comedy favourite of Cannes. Invigorating and intelligent.”
    Pierre Vavasseur, LE PARISIEN

    Ophelia Daguin, ELLE MAGAZINE

    Erwan, an unshakeable mine-clearing expert, suddenly loses his footing when he learns that his father is not his father. Despite all the tenderness he feels for the man who raised him, Erwan discreetly sets out to learn more about and to find his father. He turns out to be an elderly and very endearing man named Joseph, who Erwan becomes fond of. As good things come in pairs, Erwan crosses paths with the elusive Anna, who he undertakes to seduce. But one day when he pays Joseph a visit, Erwan realizes that Anna is in fact his half-sister. This bomb is even harder to defuse because his adoptive father now suspects that Erwan is hiding something from him.

    “A tour de force! Crossing the Lines is a brilliant blend of mystery, gut-wrenching psychological suspense
    and literary storytelling. The novel stands as a shining (and refreshing) example of meta fiction at its best – witty and wry, stylish and a joy to read.
    ” – Jeffery Deaver No 1, International Bestselling Author


    Madeleine d’Leon is fixated on the story of Edward ‘Ned’ McGinnity, the hero in her latest crime novel. But Ned too is a writer, and the character he can’t get out of his head is none other than Madeleine herself.

    In this deeply intimate portrayal of two minds wrestling and embracing, it becomes increasingly difficult to define where imagination ends and reality begins.

    “As one for whom certain story lines and characters have become as real as life itself, Crossing the Lines was a pure delight, a swift yet psychologically complex read, cleverly conceived and brilliantly executed.”
    Dean Koontz, New York Times bestselling author

    “Sulari’s wonderful way with words will continue to surprise and delight,” says Pantera Press CEO and
    co-founder, Alison Green. “Stepping away from her Rowland Sinclair series and the 1930s, Sulari transports us to the present day in her stand-alone commercial literary feat, Crossing the Lines. This novel will leave you spinning, as the lines blur between reality and fiction with an unforeseeable shock ending.”

    This elegant exploration of the creative process is “very different to Sulari’s previous works, but it is still
    abundant with the Sulari-isms we all know and love,” notes Green.


    Crossing the Lines sees Sulari flex all of her literary muscles to seamlessly weave together stories of murder, love and obsession in a way that not only asks ‘who done it?’, but also what is real and who is imagined.

    SULARI GENTILL: AUTHOR BIO
    Award-wining author Sulari Gentill set out to study
    astrophysics, graduated in law, and then abandoned
    her legal career to write books instead of contracts.
    Born in Sri Lanka, Sulari learned to speak English in
    Zambia, grew up in Brisbane and now lives in the
    foothills of the Snowy Mountains of NSW where, with
    her historian husband, she grows French black truffles,
    cares for a variety of animals and raises two wild
    colonial boys. Sulari also paints, but only well enough
    to know she should write, preferably in her pyjamas.
    Sulari is the author of the award-winning and
    best-selling Rowland Sinclair Mysteries as well as the
    Greek mythology adventure series, The Hero Trilogy.
    “Sulari Gentill is an unusually vivid and witty writer.”
