La résurrection d'Hassan Carlo Guillermo Proto

Film index A to Z

Resurrecting Hassan

The Hartings are blind. There’s father Denis, who has a passion for music; mother Peggy, who dreams of a new life; and daughter Lauviah, who is navigating the gap between childhood and adulthood. All three sing in the Montreal metro, and all are haunted by an absence: Hassan, the young son and only sighted member of the family, who died tragically a few years ago. But they are filled with hope and courage when they listen to a Russian mystic’s teachings on resurrection. Carlo Guillermo Proto has made an intense but unsensational film that follows a uniquely endearing family, deeply torn between insight, guilt and mysticism. Haunted by a sometimes-difficult past, they pursue their quest for serenity at all costs.
