40 Love
Produced by Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne, 40 Love is the story of a father and son who are both trying to transcend their current reality to achieve their dreams. After losing his job as senior executive in a large chain store, Jérôme is determined to start his own new business, despite the concerns of his wife. Their son Ugo, though only 11, already shows great promise as a future tennis pro, and hopes to get accepted to the national training center at Roland-Garros. Father and son are very close emotionally yet unable to really understand each other. Meanwhile the gaps between Jérôme and his wife are insidiously widening. Together, Ugo and Jérôme begin to realize that not all rules can be bent in the quest for success.
