Cafe De Flore


France 2012, 121 mins
Director: Jean-Marc Vallée
Starring: Vanessa Paradis

This multilayered drama from French-Canadian writer-director Vallée (C.R.A.Z.Y.) accentuates the unexplainable mysteries of love.

Told as two interweaving stories, it depicts a unique connection between two very different sets of people, despite them being separated by time and place.

Vanessa Paradis (HEARTBREAKER) stars as Jacqueline, a hard-up young mum struggling to raise her son in 1960s Paris. Meanwhile in present-day Montreal we meet Antoine (Parent), a jet-setting DJ who has left his childhood sweetheart and their two kids for the beguiling Rose (Brochu). As the film builds steadily towards its spiritual climax, revealing the point at which these seemingly disparate lives overlap in an atmospheric twist that is deftly delivered, each character deciphers the meaning of true love. The result is a work of spellbinding metaphysical clarity.
