Storyline

Annie, Jean, Claude, Albert and Jeanne have been friends for over forty years. But they are growing old and old age tends to be synonymous with reduced autonomy, loss of memory, illness, retirement home and, worst of all, separation. One day, one of the five friends suggests to say no to isolation and loneliness: what if they lived together? Written by Guy Bellinger

Ups and downs of old age
13 July 2012 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

As much as we try to believe that we may do better when we hit that old age mark, it is hard not to be skeptical about how much we may think we know.

"Et Si On Vivait Tous Ensemble?" is a lovely movie that, in spite of its comic look at our possible destiny, raises that issue that most of us are afraid to accept: getting old without loved ones that are willing to hold our hand until the end. We are all born alone into this world, but from the moment we experience the comfort of people's company we are hooked for life. And realizing that that company may not be there when our time comes is a hard reality.

In the same line as "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel", although less fancy in its production, this movie is a lovely dose of optimism to those who already feel like they are left behind, as well as any young generation who think that old age is something to ignore instead of embracing with love and respect.
