TENDERNESS [La tendresse]

After their ski instructor son breaks his leg in the Alps, Belgian divorced couple Lise (Marilyne Canto) and Frans (Dardenne Brothers regular Olivier Gourmet) must share a car trip to France to bring him home in Marion Hänsel's sensitive, heartwarming and beautifully observed drama. Lacking theatrical pyrotechnics, the film simply delivers on its title, showing how a family—even a divided one—comes together during a minor crisis. Official Selection, 2013 Rotterdam, Karlovy Vary Film Festivals.
