André  has never been the easiest of fathers. But when he suffers a debilitating stroke and calls on his daughter, Emmanuèle, to help him die with some dignity, she finds herself faced with a painful decision.

An adaptation of Emmanuèle Bernheim’s memoir, Everything Went Fine is both a detailed portrait of family relationships and a frank account of the process involved in assisted dying. Steering clear of the moral arguments such issues often raise, the film instead focuses on the reckoning Emmanuèle has with her difficult relationship with a stubborn and unrelenting father, and coming to terms with how to help him now, despite it.

'The performances from Dussollier and Marceau are quietly outstanding' - Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
