My choice.
29 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

This difficult subject was also treated in Germany the following year: a terminally -ill young girl chooses assisted suicide in Switzerland...."Und Morgen Mittag,Bin Ich Tot" (Tomorrow at noon,I'll be dead" )

It's interesting to compare the two movies :in the German work,the heroine is Still young and pretty ,and we see her dither over the final decision,make the best of the little time she has left to live :it's not easy to leave for a so called better world when you should have your whole life ahead of you.

In "Quelques Heures De Printemps" ,the situation is different ,because we deal with a woman nearing seventy who has seen her son grow ,and who refuses pointless sufferings ;during the whole movie,Yvette ,played by highly talented Helene Vincent,is calm ,serene ;she has prepared herself for weeks for this death,after careful consideration.Matching her every step of the way is Vincent Lindon's son ,who finds it hard her mom should leave this world (and him) that way .

The place where IT is going to happen is a patch of peaceful clear country land ,which sharply contrasts with the lugubrious last great journey.

Like the German movie,recommended ,but to be avoided if you are down in the dumps.
