Café de Flore (2011) Film. Director : Jean-Marc Vallée

A love story between a man and woman. And between a mother and her son. A mystical and fantastical odyssey on love. (Imdb)

A love story about people separated by time and place but connected in profound and mysterious ways. The film chronicles the parallel fates of Jacqueline, a young mother with a disabled son in 1960s Paris, and Antoine, a recently-divorced, successful DJ in present day Montreal. What binds the two stories together is love – euphoric, obsessive, tragic, youthful, timeless love. «C.R.A.Z.Y. had set a challenge that Café de Flore has managed to meet, with the difference that the latter film explores in greater depth the realm of fantasy, confronting new themes […] C.R.A.Z.Y. literally gave me the wings to fly up high, to push me to explore unknown territories. Café de Flore is the fruit of this flight I took». (Jean-Marc Vallée) –Venice Days (Mubi)
