"Ivory Coast-born filmmaker Katell Quillévéré adapts Maylis de Kerangal's Booker Prize-longlisted novel for this elegant and affecting film which draws three seemingly unrelated stories together into a tale about the moment when tragedy meets hope. For her third feature film - her first won the prestigious Prix Jean Vigo for best feature in 2010 - Quillévéré has taken on a psychologically complex tale and told it with both technical skill and attentiveness to the nuances of human interaction. Moving easily between scenes with great control and a powerful visual imagination, she transforms 'Réparer les vivants' into a deeply moving experience." (TIFF)
