Tenderness (La Tendresse) by Marion Hnsel (Belgium/France, 2013, 80 min.). A couple, separated for the past 15 years, find themselves together again for the duration of a two-day journey to retrieve their son, who is hospitalized in another country after a serious ski accident. What do they still feel for one another—indifference, rancor, perhaps jealousy? Or maybe complicity, friendship, and love? This light-hearted road movie, with endearing performances from Olivier Gourmet and Marilyne Canto, allows us to discover two profoundly sincere beings for whom we can only feel affection.
