Declaration of War (2011)

Directed by: Valérie Donzelli
Country: France

Plot: When their young son is diagnosed with a brain tumor, young parents Roméo and Juliette unite in the fight for his survival.
Review: Following “The Queen of Hearts”, “Declaration of War” is the second feature-film from Valérie Donzelli. Racing against time, a Parisian couple tries the best way to accept their baby’s brain malignant tumor. The movie depicts the importance of family and friends, as well as the parent’s concerns in having the best assistance for their son. The problem was maintaining the narrative levels throughout the story. An honest movie denoting some rhythm oscillations.
Relevant awards: Best film, actor and actress (Gijón); jury and audience award (Paris Cinema); best screenplay (Etoiles d'Or).
