IN CINEMAS & EXCLUSIVELY ON CURZON HOME CINEMA. From the celebrated French director Katell Quillévéré ('Love Like Poison', 'Suzanne') comes 'Heal the Living', a remarkable ensemble drama about the fragility and fluidity of life, scored by the Oscar-winning composer Alexandre Desplat and based on the Wellcome Prize-winning novel by Maylis de Kerangal. Simon is living the life of a typical teenage boy – surfing, cycling and chatting up girls – until a tragic accident leaves him stretched out on a hospital bed, technically alive, but brain dead. While the news means agony for his family, it brings bittersweet hope for Claire, a woman on the waiting list for a desperately needed heart transplant. With time running out, Simon’s parents are forced to make a painful decision with consequences that will ripple out and touch the lives of people they will never meet. Featuring top French actors including Tahar Rahim, Emmanuelle Seigner and Anne Dorval, 'Heal the Living' is a moving meditation on loss, hope and the infinite ties that connect us. Executed with poise, precision and understated originality, it cements Quillévéré’s place among France’s most exciting young filmmaking talent. ✮✮✮✮✮ "A quietly staggering, pristinely acted ensemble piece" - Robbie Collin, The Telegraph ✮✮✮✮✮ "Cinema to make the heart beat faster" - Wendy Ide, The Observer ✮✮✮✮✮ "Quillévéré's best film, and an early high-bar set for French cinema in 2017" - David Jenkins, Little White Lies
