Tout s’est bien passé
Successful, rich, and well-connected, 85-year-old André suffers a stroke, not very badly off but the stubborn André demands his favourite daughter to arrange for him an assisted suicide in a Swiss clinic.
‘François Ozon has brought a tremendous understated confidence and artistry to this very affecting film about euthanasia and assisted dying. There is a robust unsentimentality here… Another type of drama would put the issue-led handwringing at the centre of things. Not this film. It is just the hinge on which the family drama turns, and the performances from Dussollier and Marceau are quietly outstanding.’—Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
