Café de Flore : official trailer (English)

Very good movie, striking, thought provoking, great soundtrack.

From Wikipedia:

Café de Flore is a Canadian drama film, released in 2011. Directed, written, and edited by Jean-Marc Vallée,(Dallas Buyers Club) the film garnered 13 nominations for the 2012 Genie Awards.[3]

Plot- The film cuts between two seemingly unrelated stories. One, set in present-day Montreal, stars Kevin Parent as Antoine, a successful club DJ torn between his new girlfriend Rose (Évelyne Brochu) and his still-complicated relationship with his ex-wife Carole (Hélène Florent); the other, set in 1960s Paris, stars Vanessa Paradis as Jacqueline, the fiercely protective single mother of Laurent (Marin Gerrier), a child with Down syndrome who has a crush on Véro (Alice Dubois), a friend and companion who also has Down syndrome. The film builds toward the revelation of how the two stories are linked.
