CAFÉ DE FLORE

DIRECTOR: Jean-Marc Vallée - CANADA

Blending smooth electro beats with the retro sounds of big band strings and horns, the music sets the tone for a story about love in its many forms. The film opens in present-day Montreal, where Antoine, a successful DJ in his early ’40s, has not only a dream job and home but also two beautiful young daughters and the love of his life, Rose, by his side. Life is not as rosy for the occasionally foul-mouthed, working-class Frenchwoman Jacqueline who is raising her mentally challenged seven-year-old son alone in 1967 Paris. These two stories unspool side by side, bound together by love—euphoric, obsessive, tragic, youthful, timeless love. “Bracing, daring, and entirely invigorating. A word of advice, though: when the credits start rolling, remain seated.”—Now, Toronto (120 mins.)

Filmography: Black List (95), Los Locos (97), Loser Love (99), C.R.A.Z.Y. (05), The Young Victoria (09).

Winner of the Best Canadian Film Award at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Sponsored by Firesteed Cellars.
