German-French-Iranian filmmaker Emily Atef with her fifth feature casts Vicky Krieps as a 33-year-old French woman whose discovery that she is suffering from a rare lung disease prompts a solo journey to Norway. The late Gaspard Ulliel co-stars in his last feature role (he died in a skiing accident at the start of the year) as her boyfriend who tries to come to terms with her condition and the finality of her death. Selected for Cannes Un Certain Regard and the London Film Festival.

'Ulliel and Krieps are superb in a rare film that allows the cruelty of chronic disease to play out with pessimistic finality' - IndieWire
