Café de Flore, inspired by a jazz album of the same name, chronicles a love story between a man and a woman in 2011 Montréal, and between a mother and her handicapped son in 1969 Paris. The French-Canadian director Jean-Marc Vallée (The Young Victoria) uses music throughout the film as a way of uniting these two very different lives that have a common thread running between them. We are introduced first to Antoine, a club DJ who lives a dream lifestyle with his young family in Montreal. As the film’s plot shifts timeframes and locations to Paris in the late 60s, we meet Laurent, a young boy who has Down’s Syndrome and is cared for by his fiercely protective and unfailingly attentive mother, Jacqueline. The film’s non-linear narration creates tiny snapshots of the lives of the main characters, making a mosaic of seemingly disconnected images and music that entwine Jacqueline and Antoine’s lives. Café de Flore is a mystical and fantastical odyssey on love.
