What mends a broken heart?

Alex finds himself recovering from a recent breakup just as his terminally-ill father decides to stop his cancer treatment. Attempting his version of tough love, Alex’s roommate criticizes Alex for not even trying to start again. Later, Alex crosses paths with Manon at the supermarket and realizes that he has the opportunity to forage a new love. In this French romance, the characters honestly expose themselves to each other and are able to analyze their own decisions, resulting in a superb film about love, loss, and renewal. – Jacqui Villarreal
