Hello out there! Advanced middle age Quebecois (that's in Canada), male doctor falls for much younger woman.

Married life with a wife of 28 years and two teen-aged children practising medicine in the 'burbs has drained the man. Starting a new life with a new (and much younger) woman is irresistible and he goes for it....

Cliché to the Nth degree so far, granted. But the film is anything but! This is a French film (OMG!), like sub-titles!! But waaaay worth it.

The entire movie is well done...just like you would like your steak to be This is a family drama with stereotypes so flagrant and imposed it actually makes it easier for the viewer to understand the dominoes that start to fall when someone utters the word "divorce"! As a father, I would WANT my family to see this....13+. This is a "big" film for Québec, not that many show up, do bother with this one if you can.

As drama unfolds, you sympathize with all the characters...and most assuredly, this is the ultimate charm of this movie. All the characters have on screen time to develop their story, then there is drama (for all), and lol, there is a "fin" for all which will leave you with the afterglow of having sipped a fine brandy.

40% mind you.

As far as I can tell, sound, camera, sets, costumes were so realistic and well set....you never notice....it's point exactly here as this is a current "live" family drama unfolding. I even stared at the screens of TV's and computers as they appeared to see if the screens were flickering...nah, they got that right too.

It manages to be quite funny as well with all the predicaments family members and loved ones only can impose on you.

This movie draws you in with a documentary style on human relationships and when the narrator reaches the human male at 40 (in his human nature narrative)....the story slowly unfolds with our main protagonist, the middle aged doctor yearning for a deeper meaning to his existence....and the remaining 1-2 decades of autonomy he has left to enjoy......

Real food for your mind and soul.......fin.
