«ELLE S’EN VA shows a time of life we see so rarely in cinema, with all its splendor, joy and whimsy, expressing the happiness of the time remaining rather than the more expected one of nostalgia and regret.»

    • Synopsis
    • Bettie is in her early sixties. Jilted by her lover, she is left alone to deal with the financial problems facing her family’s restaurant. So what should she do with her life now? She gets into her car to go for a drive round the block to get away from it all. But her journey turns out not quite like she had planned: there are chance meetings, an ex-Miss France gala, renewed ties with her estranged daughter, the realisation she has a grandson, and possibly, at the end of the road, love…..opening up new horizons.
