François Ozon’s moving, deeply personal drama Everything Went Fine is based on a memoir by his late writing partner Emmanuèle Bernheim. The film launched in the Cannes Film Festival’s Official Competition and features outstanding performances from Sophie Marceau (Braveheart, The World is not Enough, Beyond the Clouds) and Andre Dussollier (Colonel Chabert, Tell No One, Un Cœur en Hiver) in this powerful family story.
When the elderly André (André Dussollier) suffers a debilitating stroke, he asks his daughter Emmanuèle (Sophie Marceau) to help end his life. She gradually comes to accept his request, but the impact on her and her loved ones brings out all the heartbreak and resentment in a family where André has never been the most loving or lovable father. A poignant reflection on a lifetime filled with tension, laughter, guilt and, ultimately, love.
