Simon is an experienced doctor who rubs shoulders with death on a daily basis in the respiratory department in a hospital. Like any good professional, he has learnt to shield himself from it. But when his own mother is hospitalised in a critical condition in a nearby unit, his private and professional lives collide. Simon’s whole world, his certainties and beliefs are shaken to the core. Directly inspired by his oldest brother who is a pulmonologist and his ailing motherwhen she, Breath of Life is the first feature of David Roux who worked as theatre journalist for 15 years, and later as literary manager in film business. Jérémie Renier who we had last seen in Ozon’s Double Lover, displays a wonderful performance.
This film was a Meetings on the Bridge participant.
