“Peaceful” — by award-winning filmmaker Emmanuelle Bercot — premiered to rave reviews at the Cannes Film Festival. It stars Catherine Deneuve, Benoit Magimel (who won the Cesar Award for Best Actor for this role), Cécile de France and Gabriel Sara.

A son in denial of a serious illness. A mother facing the unbearable. And between them a doctor and a nurse fighting to do their job and help them find acceptance. The four of them have one year and four seasons to come together and understand what it means to die while living.

“Grab your tissues: this is a true, heart-wrenching drama, and one of the great ones; a film that makes you want to breathe and love deeply.” – Le Parisien (France)

“A profound work about this path towards death we call life. You will not forget this film anytime soon.” – Le Point (France)

“Thumb’s up: With her characteristic solemnity, Emmanuelle Bercot creates a moving drama from heartrending material.” – Telerama (France)
