At dawn, three young surfers from Le Havre surf a stormy sea. On their way home a few hours later, they’re involved in a terrible accident. As a result, one is hospitalized in critical condition, put on a respiratory machine, lingering between life and death, his existence a mere illusion. At the same time in Paris, a sick woman is waiting for an organ transplant that may save her life. Katell Quillévéré’s new film is undoubtedly one of this year’s best. The French screenwriter/director presents a drama on the fragility of life, and the way strangers’ fates may intertwine. Tom Harari’s exquisite cinematography and immaculate performances by an impressive cast complement this superior directorial accomplishment.
