Now in their eighties, they would be overlooked for most leading roles, which are usually written for younger characters. Most romance films revolve around dating, courtship and marriage, using the formation of a romantic union to structure the story.

When Anne suffers ill health, the spectre of death looms and her bond with husband Georges is tested, much to their daughter's distress.
