Movie Info

When cancer strikes the mother of the family in this French film, everyone in the family expresses a previously invisible caring and tolerance of the others. The father has always been a bit of a drunk, and is forever chasing younger women. Despite that, he and his wife care for each other, and he tends attentively to her in her last days while remaining unchanged in character. The son and daughter-in-law, whose marriage is somewhat sterile, have similarly penetrating interactions with the dying mother. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

A remarkably sensitive straightforward but complex and brutally honest naturalistic drama on dying.

Death is a hard subject to make films on, but Pialat does it with unflinching realism.
