About the Movie
Heal The Living follows three seemingly unrelated stories that carefully weave together: A French teenager and his friends on a surfing road trip that leads to tragedy; a woman in another town who learns that her weak heart is beginning to fail and action must be taken; and two teams of doctors and medical experts who struggle through their day-to-day attempts to save lives. Ultimately, it is an impassioned story of personal connections that philosophically, spiritually and literally plumbs the depths of the human heart.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Katell Quillevere's superb third feature is a wrenching medical drama that blends dazzling formal polish with rawest emotion.
Fresh: Unusual in its story, unexpected in its structure, made with an unerring instinct for emotional connection, "Heal the Living" wallops us without ever overplaying its hand.
Fresh: Precision writing and editing (the latter courtesy of Thomas Marchand), as well as an impressive grasp of the power of mise-en-scene, come together to deliver resonant scenes even if we don't know the characters very well.
Fresh: At once sorrowful and optimistic, Heal the Living captures the terrifying fragility of life, even as it also recognizes the strength derived from the many connections - organic, emotional, and associative - that bind and define us.
