    • Synopsis
    • Ne Me Quitte Pas is a tragicomic ode to failure. Set in the slow-paced countryside, Bob (Flemish) and Marcel (Walloon) stand strong together, sharing solitude, humor and a craving for alcohol. Suicide is their preferred way out, if worse comes to worst, having already found the perfect spot: under Bob’s “tree of life”. Bob loves his freedom and forest, while Marcel tries to hold on to the family he is about to lose. When the odd chore is done, time is filled with drinking. After Marcel decides to quit drinking, Bob refuses to join him in rehab. The film tells a story of morality and of a beautiful, modest and ironic life on the brink of society.
