Aymé’s wife recently died in an accident at the farm. He’s overcome – not by grief, but farm work: he can’t handle it alone. He absolutely must find another wife, but in his village, it’s not such an easy task.
He therefore decides to seek help from a marriage bureau. Understanding that his search is spurred by practical rather than emotional reasons, the bureau’s director sends him to Romania, where numerous women are willing to do anything to leave behind the misery in which they live. Aymé doesn’t know it, but his encounter with Elena will change his life.
The Last Day by Rodolphe Marconi (Le Dernier jour, France, 2004, 108 min.). From the writer/director of This Is My Body, The Last Day is a suspense-filled family drama in which everyone seems weighed down by some great secret. Gaspard Ulliel (A Very Long Engagement) stars as Simon, a stubborn, vulnerable, 19-year-old student. When Simon returns to his childhood home on the coast of Brittany for the Christmas holidays, he has a girl in tow: Louise, who he has just met on the train. As Louise spends more and more time with one of Simon’s childhood friends, the threat of conflict between Simon, his parents, and his sister is tangible. “A pleasing aura of expectation and mystery permeates The Last Day” (Variety). Description adapted from the Rotterdam Film Festival.
