In 1978, Guy is found dead in the basement of the family home in a small village in Quebec. The real cause of his death remains a mystery for most of his family. Years later, his son David, now a loving father of two children, secretly still carries the weight of this tragedy. Likewise, David’s daughter must contend with her father’s suffering. VIFF favourite Anne Émond directs this accomplished drama—featuring a uniformly fine cast that includes Maxim Gaudette, Karelle Tremblay, Valérie Cadieux and Mikael Gouin—about life, family, forgiveness and grief.

"Our Loved Ones is a film that deals with dark subject matter and yet celebrates life in so doing. It is the story of a family shaken by a tragedy, the tremors of which will be felt for several decades. It is also and above all a story of the great love between a father and daughter, David and Laurence."—Anne Émond

"Émond brings a light touch to profound material… Only a handful of films have even attempted this kind of story-telling…"—Now (Toronto)

"There are sequences of genuine sensitivity here, and a sense of family history as a sprawling, living thing that evokes Olivier Assayas in his domestic-epic mode. But the summer hours here are cast in a long shade."—Adam Nayman, Cinema Scope
