THE TASTE OF BLUEBERRIES
LE GOÛT DES MYRTILLES
2014, 90 min, Belgium, Dir: Thomas De Thier

In the second feature from writer-director Thomas De Their, elderly couple Michel and Jeanne (Michel Piccoli and Natasha Parry) take to the road for their summer picnic, an annual ritual to remember their son Philippe, who died decades earlier. After arriving at the forest, they lose their car keys, and as the two wander through the woods they encounter a lifetime of memories, dreams and fears. A touching and poetic drama that mirrors the human experience with the wonders of nature. In French with English subtitles.
