About Our Children
After an intense romance, Murielle (Emilie Dequenne), a Belgian schoolteacher, marries her boyfriend Mounir (Tahir Rahim). They have four children together, but Murielle feels unsettled by Mounir's relationship with Andre (Niels Arestrup), a wealthy doctor who is also their benefactor. Some years before, Andre married Mounir's sister so that she could leave Morocco and settle in Belgium, and has remained a constant, meddlesome presence in his life ever since. Mounir is in Andre's debt as he works at Andre's practice and he has given the couple a lot of financial help, even paying for their honeymoon. But they also have to share his house and Murielle becomes more and more distressed by their strange co-habitation and Andre's deluded notion that he is their saviour.
