France, Belgium / 2016 / 104 minutes / DCP
A sublimely compassionate, heart-crushing feature about the moment when death meets hope. Facing a teenager confirmed brain-dead after a car crash, a team of medical experts pitch for the virtues of organ donation, and a mother of two is saved thanks to the heart transplant. While the surgery scenes look dazzlingly realistic, director Katell Quillevere has been careful to avoid a wrenching ER-like medical melodrama, transforming the film into a deeply touching experience connected to life, love and death.Registration details:
