In this highly untraditional tale of forbidden romance, sixtysomethings Fer and Fransje are long-divorced when the sudden death of their forty-year-old son unexpectedly brings them back together. United in their shared grief, they console one another over the tragedy— and soon find themselves falling in love all over again. Worried about upsetting their family's delicate balance, the pair try to keep their affair a secret, but this is easier said than done and when both their children and their current partners find out, things get complicated. Nicole Van Kilsdonk crafts a tender romantic dramedy about the endurance of love, the complexity of family life and the hope of second chances. DIR Nicole Van Kilsdonk; SCR Peer Wittenbols, Joris Oonk; PROD Ineke Kanters, Jan Van Der Zanden. Netherlands/Belgium, 2017, color, 99 min. In Dutch with English subtitles. NOT RATED
