Searching for a soulmate? Or do they even exist?
To celebrate the release of Vanessa Paradis’s new film CAFE DE FLORE, in cinemas on 11 May, Momentum Pictures are offering a soulmate-themed DVD bundle of THE YOUNG VICTORIA, THE PAINTED VEIL and DEAR JOHN.
From the director of C.R.A.Z.Y and The Young Victoria comes a love story about people separated by time and place but connected in profound and mysterious ways. Atmospheric, fantastical, tragic and hopeful, the film chronicles the parallel fates of Jacqueline (an award winning performance by Vanessa Paradis), a fiercely devoted single mother and her young son Laurent in 1960s Paris, and Antoine (Kevin Parent), a successful DJ in present day Montreal, balancing the demands of his career with his responsibilities towards his new love, Rose, his daughters and his ex, Carole (Helene Florent); who still harbours a secret belief that Antoine, her soulmate, will return to her.
What binds the two stories together is love – euphoric, unconditional, obsessive, tragic, youthful, timeless love – and destiny.
A box office smash in Canada where the film was nominated for 13 Genies (Canada’s Oscars) winning 3 awards, including Best Actress for Paradis, CAFE DE FLORE boasts a nostalgia-filled soundtrack including The Cure, Pink Floyd, Sigur Ros and Matthew Herbert, and is an elegant, emotionally grown-up drama which captures the complexities of relationships, exploring forces we seldom acknowledge, and even more rarely understand.
