A film about ageing and illness _ one to avoid for a first date _ yet a powerful drama told with warmth and humanity. In an elegant Parisian apartment Ann and Georges’ lives are torn apart when Ann suffers two strokes. Georges witnesses her decline and is forced to ponder issues of mortality and suffering. ¬•Quite brilliant, extraordinarily moving.’ Sight & Sound. Hanneke’s second Palme D’Or.
