Winner of the Best Director prize, along with four other French César awards, Patrice Chereau's Those Who Love Me Can Take The Train is a beautifully moving celebration of new life blossoming from tragic loss. The film follows the journey of a group of family, friends and lovers of painter Jean-Baptiste from Paris to Limoges to attend his funeral.

Featuring a talented cast of France's best contemporary actors (including Vincent Perez, Pascal Greggory, Valeria Bruni Tedeschi and Charles Berling), luminous cinemascope photography and an eclectic rock soundtrack, Those Who Love Me is an important new film which handles an intricate story line with finesse. Even more significantly, it presents a group of well-defined characters, of varying gender and sexual orientation, with a degree of sensitivity and compassion rarely seen in movies today.

Critical Acclaim
