“You have to be aware from the beginning that you are not going to devote the film to the themes, but the people, the characters. So basically, you try to address issues, but through the emotions of the characters, what they are living.”

    Philippe Falardeau Canada, 2011

    Philippe Falardeau presents a moving, heartrending story in which all the characters share, in different ways, the loss of someone they love. Underlying this grief are sensations of impotence, of fear, of abandon. Nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.
