It's Only the End of the World/Juste la fin du monde

It's Only the End of the World( French :Juste la fin du monde) is a 2016 Canadian-French drama film written, edited and directed by Xavier Dolan . The film is based on the play of the same name by Jean-Luc Lagarce and stars Gaspard Ulliel , Nathalie Baye , Marion Cotillard , Léa Seydoux and Vincent Cassel . It is about a young playwright who reunites with his family after a 12-year absence to inform them he is going to die.

It was shot in Montreal and Laval, Quebec , beginning in 2015, employing a bungalow . The small core of actors were selected against typecasting , with Dolan and Cotillard challenged by the awkwardness in dialogue inherent in Lagarce's work.

The film screened at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival , where it received divided reactions from critics. Dolan became the second Canadian director to receive the Cannes Grand Prix . It also won six Canadian Screen Awards , including Best Motion Picture , and three César Awards , including Best Director .

In a place identified as "Somewhere," Louis, a 34-year-old gay playwright dealing with a terminal illness , takes a short flight to his home to reunite with his family, whom he has not seen in 12 years. His younger sister, Suzanne, has little memory of him. Upon arriving at the house, Louis' mother Martine is surprised to realize Louis has never met his brother Antoine's wife Catherine, as Louis was not present at their wedding. Catherine begins telling Louis about her and Antoine's children, nervously stammering to explain why they named one of their boys Louis, after Louis and Antoine's father. Antoine creates tension, snapping that Louis is uninterested in hearing about their children. Louis expresses interest in seeing the family's former house, citing nostalgia, which bewilders the others who regard it as a ruin. He later talks on the telephone, saying he plans to tell his family about his impending death and then leave, while expressing uncertainty as to how they will react.

Louis and Catherine awkwardly meet in the hallway and attempt to apologize to each other for the tense conversations. Louis remarks he assumes Antoine has attempted to give her a negative opinion of Louis. Catherine replies Antoine actually speaks little of Louis, and Antoine feels Louis has little to no interest in their lives, and she openly suspects this belief may have some truth in it. She questions Louis if he knows what Antoine does for a living, explaining he makes tools in a nearby location. Martine also lectures Louis about taking responsibility in the family, saying his status, success and courage gives him some authority. She learns that he has moved from the address where she had been sending his mail, and he had not told her where he currently lives.

During a meal, Louis promises to visit home more, and tells Suzanne she is welcome to visit him. However, it soon becomes apparent Louis intends to leave. Seizing upon this, Antoine forcibly attempts to remove him from the house, while the family shouts back at Antoine for his brutality. Antoine lashes back, saying he is tired with being treated as the family's freak. After a pause, Louis leaves without having told his family of his prognosis .
