National Short and Medium-Length Competition

Yvon / L'Éternel Benoit Massé

In a retirement home, Yvon’s life is filled with his passion for opera and ballet music. He knows all the tunes by heart, not hesitating to sing the songs himself. In this film, whose rich cinematography and inspired sound design contribute to its serenity, director Benoit Massé follows Yvon’s daily life with finesse. Cut with inventive simplicity into acts, like an opera, each moment where the ordinary and surreal coexist illustrates the life of this man, who charms with his humour and desire to live the rest of his days to the fullest.
