Those Who Remain

In this Gallic variation on Brief Encounter, a hospital oncology wing serves as the meeting place for two distraught people: a somber professor (Vincent Lindon) whose wife is dying of breast cancer and a flighty graphic designer (Emmanuelle Devos) whose boyfriend is being treated for colon cancer. Their new friendship provides each of them with much-needed emotional support until romantic feelings creep in and complicate their lives. Writer-director Anne Le Ny avoids cheap sentiment, infusing her story with quiet grace, but the film's real strength is the chemistry between Lindon and Devos, whose nuanced performances make the chance relationship absorbing and wholly believable. 93 min.
