Synopsis:
The various divorces and new relationships of Bastien's parents and stepdads have brought him six stepbrothers and stepsisters. This means lots of moms, lots of dads and many bedrooms where the kids spend a few nights, then pack up and move to the other parent’s home. But now, Bastien has had enough. And he's got a revolutionary plan: The seven kids will live in one place and the grownups will be the ones rotating! When the parents reluctantly agree to give Bastien’s model a try, new amorous relationships develop.

Comments:
Cheerful comedy in which the young characters superbly articulate the feelings and associations children have. Our young hero often comments on things in the voice-over. Pretty liberal and emancipatory, and therefore typically European film. (Cinekid Amsterdam 2016)
