In La Tendresse, a divorced couple hits the road to take care of their hospitalized son when he has a skiing accident in the French Alps. This subtle, comic fugue about the tenderness the family shows towards each other despite challenging situations is skillfully directed by Marion Hänsel. Watch the trailer here. Released in France in October 2013, La Tendresse runs 78 minutes.
Try a little tenderness and go!
