Au revoir là-haut (2017)


Yet another French film I’d watched on the plane and can’t believe I would be saying this but it made me nostalgic for France. Took a leap of faith to watch it with only French subtitles and was glad it wasn’t difficult to follow — plus I’d recognized Niels Arestrup from Un prophète (2009) ! Also was that Charles de Gaulle-Étoile métro station outside l’hôtel Péricourt ? I’m partial to the cinematography and narration style, which reminded me of Wes Anderson. Brilliant, thoroughly engaging with the couple of unexpected twists at the end. One of the more memorable French films I’ve watched in recent years.
