The Swing/Cyril Aris

The Swing/Cyril Aris


An assured, emotionally rich film about the lies a family tells to keep their patriarch happy. After sixty years of marriage, Antoine and Vivi have lost their most beloved daughter; but no one has dared to tell the bedridden nonagenarian Antoine, lest his heart crack. A simple solution, though everyone else in this densely interconnected family has then to live the same lie, giving no expression to their grief. A heavy, lyrical portrait brightened by the warming rays of loved ones’ smiles.”
