TJFF 15 – TO LIFE / À la Vie

First Festival Screening – Friday, May 1 @ 1pm

A tender and funny drama set in the sunny sixties about the reunion of Hélène, Lili and Rose, three Jewish survivors who haven’t seen each other since Auschwitz. They reconnect during a warm summer in a seaside town in the north of France. In telling his own mother’s story, filmmaker Jean-Jacques Zilbermann (Man is a Woman) lovingly recreates these women’s lives and times. “The surprising contrast between a decidedly sunny mood and dark, cumbersome memories gives À la vie its unique tone: a perfectly effective mix of drollery and tragedy.
