LIAISON MANQUÉE (MISSED CONNECTION) | Tabitha Fisher | 2011 | 1 min 25 | No words

L’AMOUR, DERNIER CHAPITRE (LOVE: THE LAST CHAPTER) | Dominique Keller | 2021 | 78 min | Original English version, French subtitles
On the outside, it looks like any ordinary seniors’ facility. But on the inside, a series of remarkable love stories is unfolding. With startlingly intimate access, director Dominique Keller follows three different couples as they navigate the delights and challenges of late-in-life romance. Following the daily routines in the facility, Keller peers into the kingdom of old age and brings each couple’s journey into tender focus. Despite health concerns, mobility issues, and interference from concerned families, the need for intimate connection and closeness remains steadfast. Quietly observational, Love: The Last Chapter builds fully embodied portraits of each individual in all of their indelible humanity.
