Laughter - The movie
As a civil war shakes the province of Quebec in Canada, Valerie is the sole survivor of a mass execution in which her boyfriend is killed. Years later, she’s in a close relationship with her new partner, Gabriel. At the Long Term Care Center where she works as an orderly, she befriends Jeanne, a well-read and funny woman, dealing with an important physical handicap.
Mixing realism and disturbing strangeness, Laughter presents a humane exploration of the survivor’s syndrome, the grieving process, the distance of time, the power of love, and the joy of being alive.
