Le démantèlement (The Auction) (2013)

Gaby (Arcand) lives alone on his family farm, while his two adult daughters live far away in the big cities. For Gaby, family always comes first. When Gaby’s eldest daughter finds herself in a financial emergency, she asks her father for immediate support to avoid losing her house for good. Gaby’s surprising response turns the whole family inside out, forcing everyone to re-examine the things they hold most dear.

A beautiful, evocative and emotionally powerful film about family, connection and growing older, whose startling insight and emotional maturity belies the youth of its director.
