A Member’s Choice Film. Georges and Anne are an octogenarian couple. They are cultivated, retired music teachers. Their daughter, also a musician, lives in Britain with her family. One day, Anne has a stroke, and the couple’s bond of love is severely tested. Thus unfold a tragic story. However, it’s the directors searing honesty and lack of sentimentality, and his talent as a writer-filmmaker that lifts this film to the heights of achievement. The storyline may sound gloomy, the film is not. It is beyond wonderful! (2hr 7min)
