LA POSITION DU LION COUCHE

Synopsis

There is an art of dying, as there is an art of giving birth. At Topaz, an outpatient palliative care unit, Stéphane , Laura, and Anne are trying to live out thier last days. This last journey, which wa all will make one day, can become a work of art in the same way as a painting or a film. This is wath Anne does, organinzing her death as a gift to the people closest to her, joining theme together in a group she calls « the boat » .

Together with the members of the boat she sharesmoments both good ans bad, troughout her illness, from beginning to end. This may sum up what the film has set out to propose in turn, a boat for its viewers.
