Remain With Me (Reste Avec Moi)
Directed by Robert Ménard | CANADA | 2010 | 98min | Subtitled
In the genre of ensemble films, REMAIN WITH ME (RESTE AVEC MOI) tells the stories of seemingly unrelated characters whose harmonious lives are shaken by a betrayal. Confronted by adversity, the characters are forced to re-examine what bonds them to others. The film is divided into five parallel stories in which the heroes are put to the test in their love relationships or friendships. A little girl and her mother, an old man and his wife, and three couples in search of equilibrium are weakened by a drama that then tightens their bond, making them stronger and closer through adversity. The film portrays a winding road through individual stories with twists and turns, only to converge in a most unexpected moment that brings the characters closer than any one of them could have imagined. REMAIN WITH ME is a poignant, revealing and emotional drama. Marvelously directed, this film brings award-winning director Robert Ménard’s ingenuity, skillfulness and proficiency to the fore. - Vince Palomarez
