A Life Begins (Une Vie Qui Commence)
Directed by Michel Monty | CANADA | 2010 | 104min | (Q&A)
Étienne’s father means the world to him. The only time Étienne is happy is when he is watching his father make his rounds at the local hospital. It is the early 1960s, and Étienne dreams of one day working in his father’s shoes. Jacques Langevin, doctor and family man, has everything he needs to be happy, but he is not the hero his son thinks him to be. Dr. Langevin’s sudden death leaves his family in shambles. Forced to move and unable to afford a proper burial, Étienne is haunted by the loss of his father and does whatever he can to keep his father’s memory alive. Will Étienne’s obsession take him down a dark path that could cause him to repeat the same mistakes his father made? A LIFE THAT BEGINS is a film that looks at how powerfully the loss of a loved one can affect us. - Vince Palomarez
