From prolific gay filmmaker Francois Ozon comes a powerful family drama in which a daughter must reconcile with her father and their shared past after he contacts her with a devastating final wish. When Andre (Andre Dussollier) suffers a debilitating stroke and calls on his daughter Emmanuele (Sophie Marceau) to help him die with dignity, she finds herself faced with a painful decision.
Based on Emmanuele Bernheim's memoir, Everything Went Fine has a matter-of-factness that elicits charming moments of humor, rendering an otherwise weighty topic accessible. Steering clear of the moral arguments such issues often raise, the film instead focuses on the reckoning Emmanuele has with her stubborn, unrelenting and long-closeted father and how to help him, with Ozon tackling a difficult subject with exceptional intelligence and sensitivity. Featuring stunning central performances by Marceau and Dussollier as well as a scene-stealing cameo by Ozon-favorite Charlotte Rampling as Andre's ex-wife.
