Storyline

Since the death of his mother, Pascal, ten years old, spends his holidays with his father, the rich Laurent Segur. One day, when diving near the shores of Corse, an aircraft falls into the sea. The holiday goes on happily with Catherine, the young and pretty girlfriend of Laurent. But soon blue marks appear on the face of Pascal. He has been contaminated by a nuclear weapon carried by the destroyed plane, and he won't survive more than six months. There is nothing Laurent can do, except give his son the best six months he has ever lived. Written by Christophe Tronche <tronche@lri.fr>

THE Christmas TREE
29 November 2005 | by (CHICAGO,ILLINOIS) – See all my reviews

The year was 1969 when I first saw this movie on television. I was twenty- five years old at the time. I really liked the movie for what values it offered. Pascal's comment to his father if his father was sick and recuperating why does he have to take medicine. The confession that he told his dad he over heard during the night that the senior doctor cried knowing there was no cure, that this young patient (himself) had only a few months to live when he had a conversation with another doctor in the hall. To me hearing this conversation about me would cause a great depression. I would'not want to eat or care about any thing or any one. I don't know how I would react to this devastated news. This movie has not been shown on TV for some years.
