      Serge L This comes out to me as a simple theme TV movie. People with rather boring lives have some issues they have a hard time resolving. The mother is about to pass to the other side and chooses her time rather early, I found. Most people would spend fortunes to stay alive a few months. Well done though since I felt like a voyeur the whole time. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 10/01/16 Full Review Audience Member This comes out to me as a simple theme TV movie.

Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member There was so much potential. The story, its narrative & directing are so thin however- in an usual Frenchie way. Some nice acting though. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member Como mucho del cine francés esto resulta lento, aburrido y buenísimo. La historia de eta madre y su hijo, un tanto perdedor, gira alrededor de la eutanasia y de la falta de comunicación entre los dos por conflictos muy profundos. Muchos temas alrededor de esta gran película sencilla y con grandes actuaciones. Gracias al EuroCine Bogotá Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Porte par la presence dense d'un Lindon prive de son capital sympathie, le drame peine a trouver un souffle propre a le faire decoller d'un quotidien juste mais atone. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Audience Member Emouvant, mais avec un léger manque de rythme Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      T'Cha Dunlevy Montreal Gazette There is admirable restraint in his storytelling, and a resistance of mainstream tropes, but the technique is almost too effective. It takes a while to pull us in. Rated: 3/5 Jan 10, 2014 Full Review Read all reviews
