J'ai placé ma mère

Québec (Canada)

Like a filmed diary, this documentary film immerses us in the personal experience of the filmmaker and his sister, who want to ensure that their mother ends her days with dignity in the CHSLD system. In the maze of this incredible ordeal, Denys Desjardins casts a very tender eye on his mother. With respect and love, he reveals the unsuspected humour of this endearing woman.
