“I want to make this trip. Even if you disagree.” Modern Films in the UK has revealed an official UK trailer for a French indie drama titled More Than Ever, originally known as Plus Que Jamais in French. This heartfelt, honest film premiered at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival earlier this year. It’s about a woman with a terminal illness who decides to explore her own mortality and encroaching end of life by going to Norway to meet with another terminally ill man who lives peacefully in a house located in a beautiful fjord. Hélène and Mathieu have been happy together for many years. Their bond is deep. When faced with an existential decision, Hélène travels alone to Norway to seek peace and meet a blogger from the internet. Vicky Krieps co-stars with Bjørn Floberg, with Gaspard Ulliel as her partner. I caught this in Cannes and it’s a good film, powerful in the way it shows how most “healthy” people can’t understand the decisions she’s making.
Here’s the official UK trailer (+ poster) for Emily Atef’s More Than Ever, direct from YouTube:
