(The article continues below - Commercial information)

Based on the theatre play of the same name by Jean-Luc Lagarce, Only the End of the World will revolve around an author who, after spending 12 years away, returns to his childhood village in order to announce his impending death to his family. At this family reunion, those present tell one another of the love they feel for each other through all the never-ending feuds, and unintentionally let out all the resentment that speaks volumes about their doubts and loneliness.

Produced by Nancy Grant and Xavier Dolan for Sons of Manual, by Nathanaël Karmitz for MK2 and by Sylvain Corbeil, Only the End of the World is sold by Séville International, which will kick off pre-sales at the Cannes Festival's Film Market. The film will be distributed in France by MK2/Diaphana.
