La tendresse (2013) by Marion Hänsel #WFF2013

Belgian road movie – focusing on the lives of one family. The parents have been divorced for several years but they both travel to bring their son back from Alps after a skiing accident disabling him from driving back home. They need to go together as one of them will need to drive back the minivan from Alps.
What has rarely been presented in European cinema – the relationship between former couple is warm, friendly and quite comfortable. The dialogues focus on little things they reminisce upon, on old stories they both can relate to and the obvious affection they both share towards their only son.
A lovely depiction of tenderness.
