Plus que jamais
33-year-old Hélène is told she has an incurable lung disease, her days are numbered. Terrible news, which also hits the people around her hard. Especially her beloved life partner Matthieu is having a hard time. A lung transplant could extend her life, but that thought hardly brings any comfort. She does find it in the posts of Norwegian blogger Mister, in which he shares his experiences with a serious illness with the world. Hélène decides to travel to Norway to meet Mister in the hope of finding an answer to the question of how to go on.
This is not just a story about death and how people deal with it, it is above all an intimate love story about people who know they have to let each other go, no matter how much they love each other. The lead roles are played by Vicky Krieps (Corsage) and Gaspard Ulliel, who sadly died in a skiing accident this year.
