Cafe de Flore (2011) DVD9
Cafe de Flore is a captivating puzzle about the mystery of love, a shape-shifting film that hits the heart the same way music enters the soul — without thought, only rapture.

Set forty years apart, and jumping back and forth between two time frames, Cafe de Flore tells the story of Parisian single mother, Jacqueline (Vanessa Paradis), struggling to raise her Down Syndrome afflicted son, Laurent (Lucas Bonin) in 1969; and Antoine (Kevin Parent), a disc jockey in present day Montreal whose life seems well-nigh perfect in terms of health, financial security (obviously he’s a well paid DJ) and happiness with his partner and two children. But things are not quite what they appear on the surface, both in terms of characterization and plot. The French pair turn out to be linked to Antoine in a way that Vallee, no doubt, thinks is an original twist on an age-old tale.
