CAFÉ DE FLORE is first and foremost an epic love story between a man and woman. And between a mother and her son. Two people from two different eras who live two extraordinary moments of passion that shake their lives. A mystical and supernatural odyssey on love.

A love story about people separated by time and place but connected in profound and mysterious ways. The film chronicles the parallel fates of Jacqueline, a young mother with a disabled son in 1960s Paris, and Antoine, a recently-divorced, successful DJ in present day Montréal. What binds the two stories together is love - euphoric, obsessive, tragic, youthful, timeless love.

„C.R.A.Z.Y. had set a challenge that CAFÉ DE FLORE has managed to meet, with the difference that the latter film explores in greater depth the realm of fantasy, confronting new themes [...] C.R.A.Z.Y. literally gave me the wings to fly up high, to push me to explore unknown territories. CAFÉ DE FLORE is the fruit of this flight I took”.

Jean-Marc Vallée, director
