  • Café de Flore

    2011. Canada/France. Written and directed by Jean Marc Vallée. With Vanessa Paradis, Kevin Parent, Hélène Florent. Vallée, whose C.R.A.Z.Y opened Canadian Front 2009 (and whose The Young Victoria enjoyed a theatrical run in the U.S. late that same year) premieres his new film at MoMA. In this passionate melodrama, music, namely the eponymous song, ties together two stories: one set in Paris in 1969, and the other in contemporary Montreal. At the heart of each narrative is love—a mother's love for a child with Down's Syndrome, and a once-divorced man's love for his new wife—and the stories intertwine in unexpected and exhilarating ways.

In the Film exhibition Canadian Front 2012
