Ne Me Quitte Pas
NE ME QUITTE PAS is a tragicomic ode to failure. Set in a Belgian village, Flemish Bob and Walloon Marcel share their solitude, their sense of humour and their craving for alcohol. They have agreed that suicide is the best way out if worse comes to worst. In that case, they have chosen the perfect spot to do so: under Bob’s tree of life. A film about existence on the brink of society - in all its beauty, modesty and irony.
