After more than 12 years, Louis returns home. He has important news. The arrival of the prodigal son and brother causes a major stir in the family, with everyone talking at once and no-one listening. Memories are brought back, old wounds reinfected. And with each passing hour, it looks more and more unlikely that Louis will finally get to say what he came home to say. This adaptation of the stage play features an excellent cast including Vincent Cassel, Marion Cotillard, Léa Seydoux and Nathalie Baye and is a rush of emotions, colours and sounds. Director Xavier Dolan creates an intense closeness between the characters, who in reality couldn't be further apart, and won the Grand Jury Prize at Cannes.
