Everything Went Fine
15 March 2023
  Rating 15

France/Belgium (2021) 113 minutes
Director: François Ozon

A daughter is forced to reconcile her past with her father when he contacts her with a devastating final wish in François Ozon’s powerful family drama. André (André Dussollier) has never been the easiest of fathers. When he suffers a debilitating stroke and calls on his daughter Emmanuèle (Sophie Marceau) to help him die with some dignity, she finds herself faced with a painful decision. An adaptation of Emmanuèle Bernheim’s memoir, Everything Went Fine is both a detailed portrait of family relationships and a frank account of the process involved in assisted dying. Featuring stunning central performances by Marceau and Dussollier, as well as a scene-stealing cameo by Charlotte Rampling as André’s ex-wife, Everything Went Fine finds Ozon tackling a difficult subject with intelligence, sensitivity and humour.
