The great French actor Michel Bouquet (jovial star of many films by the late Claude Chabrol and Luis Bunuel) contributes a stirring late-life performance in this story about the heart. Cantankerous widower Edmond’s is not very robust. But it beats to the rhythm of a fierce independence, which makes him reject the idea of going into a retirement home. Nor does he want the ministrations of Rose, who is sent to him as a home health care aide. But the young woman stands up to him. She knows the turbulence of the heart when one must accept the inevitable. Her own is still grieving from the stillbirth of her first child.

One day, a bad fall forces Edmond to accept Rose’s help. Eventually, the two grow closer. The young woman finds relief in confiding painful memories to the older man; things she cannot even bring herself to tell her husband. Meanwhile, Edmond, too, opens up, sharing recollections of his beloved wife. Debuting feature directors/writers Stéphanie Chuat and Véronique Reymond have created a touching drama that will linger long in the mind--and heart.
