About the Movie
José Garcia plays Diego Costa, who, 20 years ago, using the nickname Fonzy, regularly donated his sperm for research purposes. Now aged 42, Diego delivers fish for his family’s firm, and lives like a fun-loving teenager. But when his girlfriend Elsa (Audrey Fleurot, THE INTOUCHABLES) announces she’s pregnant, his past starts to catch up with him. Diego discovers that he’s the biological father to 533 children, 142 of whom want to know just who this Fonzy is...

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: What distinguishes "Fonzy" is its attention to Diego's Galician roots.
Fresh: The comic plot of Fonzy is outrageous, but to writer-director Isabelle Doval, it's just an armature that supports its gently funny characters and its themes of emotional and filial connections.
Rotten: Apparently there is an Indian version in the works; perhaps eventually, by UN decree, there will be one from every country in the world.
