“I guarantee you that if this were your last summer, you wouldn’t be here shooting this film. You’d be in Montreal making love like crazy.” - 81-year-old Marc-André Péloquin, from his hospital bed recovering from a heart attack

Cantankerous, passionate, funny, erotic and wise, five people between the ages of 74 and 92 give singing lessons, paint, play in a swing band, build model airplanes to fly at races, collect antique furniture and run a sanctuary for animals hurt in the wild. Shot over several years with consummate skill and superb respect for human dignity, Serge Giguère gathers together wonderful and poignant moments from these separate lives and weaves them into a luminous mosaic that celebrates pleasure in human life at all its stages and insists on the joy of living. The work of this celebrated Quebec director was featured in the Focus On… programme at Hot Docs last year and this, his 11thdocumentary, just picked up Quebec’s Jutra Award for best feature documentary. In French with English subtitles. Lynne Fernie.
