This film adaptation of writer Emmanuèle Bernheim’s account of her father’s death is Ozon’s critically acclaimed feature exposing a controversial topic with intelligence and wit.

The dilemma of assisted dying forms one key part, the complexity of troubled family relationships forms the other; both are handled with honesty and tenderness.

A strong cast commits authenticity to the dilemmas their characters grapple with. Potentially a deeply affecting watch, it explores with sensitivity the importance of choice when seeking dignity at the end of life.

Note: Contains scenes of stroke aftermath and end of life family discussion.

France 2021. 1hr 53m. Dir: François Ozon. Cast: André Dussollier, Sophie Marceau, Charlotte Rampling. Language: French with English subtitles. Awards: 5 nominations. [Original title: Tout s’est bien passé]

“A simple, realistic and modestly restrained family portrait which will resonate with many”
Fabien Lemercier, Cineuropa
“It’s rich, infinitely complex and emotionally honest material. Marceau is flawless among a cast of near-perfect turns.”
Kevin Maher, The Times
