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

sweet and lovely and gritty
19 March 2014 | by selffamilySee all my reviews

This lovely film which, as we all know, describes the lives of five fairly wealthy people living comfortably but facing the reality of their age, and impending ill health. The portraits are excellent and poignant, often amusing as some grasp on to what is left that identifies them to their selves - the Lothario cannot face life without sex and constantly needs his vanity stroking. The sweetest portrayal is that of Albert who is facing dementia, and his friends and wife don't ignore it but try to live around it. When they merge their lives under one roof, there is little chaos really, which is odd, and shows how close they must all have been, I can't imagine moving in with anyone and not facing teething problems. They don't stifle their natural behaviours and continue their friendships of forty years together under one roof. The young man who is walking the fabulous dog and also studying them is probably the most bewildered of them all. Don't think that this is saccharine sweet because of the above, it's clean and tidy, but still faces the problems. Loved it, loved them.
