Thomas Bo Larsen,
A married couple are faced with a difficult decision - to improve the life of their child by moving to another country or to stay in Iran and look after a deteriorating parent who has Alzheimer's disease.
An aspiring author during the civil rights movement of the 1960s decides to write a book detailing the African-American maids' point of view on the white families for which they work, and the hardships they go through on a daily basis.
Back from a holiday in Spain, Lili, 19, finds that Loïc, her twin brother, has left the house following a row with their father. She disapproves of her parents' apparently light attitude and is particularly shocked by her father's reluctance to even talk about the event. Lili desperately waits for a phone call from Loïc but her brother shows no sign of life. It is not long before Lili falls into depression and her condition quickly deteriorates. She won't eat anymore and is about to die when, at long last, a postcard written and sent by Loïc brings her back to life... Written by
This is a beautiful film that initially makes you think that you know what it's about, but as events unravel you'll begin to feel the depth and complexity of the story. It's unlike anything that has been put on film before, and that originality, combined with breathtaking cinematography and powerful acting abilities, make it a memorable experience. Melanie Laurent won prestigious awards for her role in this movie, yet after watching it I feel that she deserved even more recognition.
Lili's search for her beloved brother who left home is both a gripping story as well as showcasing a sort of love that we can relate to, yet not many movies tried to take it on. I will not go into spoiling details, but I encourage you to watch it if you are looking for a quality movie that embodies the finest of European artistry and be sure you will be rewarded with a sense of fulfilment on every mental and sensual level.
