Storyline

Three French sisters have their lives interrupted and their relationship called into question when their father returns to visit 15 years after having abandoned them and their now-deceased mother. Each responds differently to his return according to how her character evolved from her relation with him and his unexpected departure. They eventually realize, though, that the somewhat elderly father is quickly losing his memory and his ability to function, and the youngest daughter's decision to accept him again while she can ends up permanently changing her family ties with her sisters.

THE STORY OF A LOST FATHER
6 August 2003 | by (Gent, Belgium) – See all my reviews

One of the reasons I love French movies most is because they are tales about realistic themes. This one also even if it is not the most amusing of them all. The film opens with a shot from an old man (one of the less actors you can recognize from behind, Michel Piccolli) and when he looks through a window he sees three women but he goes away without saying a word.... The more the movie develops the more we learn that this man Louis is the father of the three : Laure (Miou-Miou), Beatrice (Sandrine Kiberlain) and Claire (Natacha Regnier). None of them haven't see a thing from him since he went away fifteen years. The girls aren't only different people (from character to their financial situations) and they're all reacting different to the coming of their lost father. Claire cant believe she's having back her father but soon she realizes that she has to take care of him (he is suffering from loosing the memory and that's why he actually came back, to recognize them while he still can) and Beatrice (the careerwoman) for whom everything is complete over, there isn't any reason why she should be remembering him again. The elder sister Laure don't know what to do (reject him or giving him that second chance) and Louis tries to find contact with her through her little daughter Marion. As said this movie is drama at it purest and director Claude Mouriéras shows it in a sort of documentarystyle...the reactions (sometimes cruel) are never explained or judged...it's just what they are and that makes "Tout va bien, on s'en va" a cold movie, but enjoyable to watch. As always it is a big pleasure to see Miou-Miou on the screen.
