THE LAST CHAPTER

Fiction, Drama, 83:00 min, 2019, Color, (HD).

 

Synopsis

Ron Weer (Bashar Shbib) is a unpublished writer from the city asked by his employer, a publisher, to pick up an overdue book manuscript from Yan de Rilke (Jan Kuilman), an isolated writer who lives in the Eastern Townships of Quebec. Yan is suspicious and reluctant.

With difficulty, Ron manages to gain Yan’s trust. They hit it off, and Yan allows Ron to read and comment on his manuscript. They argue throughout the day till night about love, politics and philosophy. As night falls Ron is invited to sleep over. The film is interwoven with Yan’s novel, Lulu in June, which tells the story of Lulu (Rebecca L. Rau), a lonely, naive and innocent young woman as she adventures with love.

Everything seems to be weaving together famously until the last chapter.
