Heal the Living (MA 15+)

Heal the Living movie poster

Follows three seemingly unrelated stories that carefully weave together: a French teenager and his friends on a surfing road trip that leads to tragedy; a woman in another town who learns that her weak heart is beginning to fail and action must be taken; and two teams of doctors and medical experts who struggle through their day-to-day attempts to save lives. Ultimately, it is an impassioned story of personal connections that philosophically, spiritually and literally plumbs the depths of the human heart.

"Heal the Living is an elegy to life and told equally as poetically." - FILMINK AUSTRALIA

"a film of great beauty and sensitivity." - SBS.COM.AU

"a film with emotional force" - GUARDIAN

"This is deeply human filmmaking." - ROBEREBERT.COM

"Unusual in its story, unexpected in its structure, made with an unerring instinct for emotional connection, "Heal the Living" wallops us without ever overplaying its hand." - LA TIMES

"Katell Quillévéré's superb third feature is a wrenching medical drama that blends dazzling formal polish with rawest emotion." - VARIETY
