In a little cove near Marseille, Angèle, Joseph, and Armand return to their elderly father’s picturesque villa. Angèle is an actress living in Paris and Joseph has just fallen in love with a girl half his age. Armand is the only one who stayed behind in Marseille to run his father’s small restaurant. It’s time for them to weigh up what they have inherited of their patriarch’s ideals and the community spirit he created in this magical place. But the arrival of a group of boat people will change their reflection. “It’s remarkable that such a small, quiet, family drama so delicately captures the zeitgeist of Europe today, where there’s a sense of loss, disruptive change, uncertainty and, yet still, hope and resilience.” —The Huffington Post. In French with English subtitles.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
