A separate couple meet again after ten years when we found the body of their missing son. During their forced reunion, they both handle the death of their child in their own way. Amid the guilt of losing a loved one, they haltingly move toward affirmation of life, acceptance of death and even the possibility of reconciliation. Chorus is a love story that emerges from mourning and leads to two survivors clinging to each other as if to heal the deepest cut of all.
It's that first movie I watch from this director (François Delisle) and although I consider this film just above mediocre, it created the spark in me to check out some more films of him. Visually speaking, there are some very original sequences and takes in this introvert movie. Actors play mainly with their silence and stares and less with dialogues. So if you are interested in witty dialogues and exchanges this would not be your movie.
