EVERYTHING WENT FINE
TOUT S’EST BIEN PASSÉ

DRAMA / FRANCE / 202O / 113 MIN / MA 15+

Adapted from Emmanuèle Bernheim’s memoir, Everything Went Well, Director François Ozon (Summer of 85, AF FFF21) delivers a powerful drama which tackles the sensitive and complex issue of the right to die with dignity.

When André (André Dussolier, Of Love and Lies, AF FFF20), 85, has a stroke, Emmanuelle (Sophie Marceau, Chance Encounter and Sex, Love & Therapy, AF FFF15) hurries to her father’s bedside. Sick and half-paralysed in his hospital bed, he asks Emmanuelle to help him end his life. But can you honour such a request from your own father?

What follows is a deeply human take on a difficult subject. Despite what is still a taboo topic in France, this film treads lightly, offering poignant light-hearted scenes that will make you laugh but also bring tears to your eyes.

This bittersweet, witty drama cleverly reveals the complexities of family dynamics. Premiered at the Cannes Film Festival 2021, Everything Went Fine is one of François Ozon’s most beautifully crafted films to date. Sophie Marceau has never been better alongside a simply masterful André Dussollier.
