After a stroke leaves him partially paralyzed 85-year-old André Bernheim (André Dussolier) demands that his eldest daughter, Emmanuèle (Sophie Marceau), helps him die. With the grudging support of her younger sister Pascale (Géraldine Pailhas) the two women set about realising their father’s wish. The film is surprisingly uplifting, with touches of humour and joy stirred into the mix. NH

“André Dussollier and Sophie Marceau are outstanding as a father and daughter whose tricky relationship is upended when he asks for her help to die.” Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian July 2021
