Dir Gasper Noe | 2021 | France / Belgium | 142 mins | 15 | French with English language subtitles
A retired psychiatrist with dementia and a struggling author with a heart condition live their final days together in an apartment. Director Gaspar Noé uses an intriguing split-screen device to show us each partner’s experiences of and reactions to one another – the wife’s disorientation as she struggles to recognise her husband; the husband’s increasing frustrations at his wife’s deterioration. A vital, painful and ultimately touching depiction of ageing and death.
