His son is terminally ill, and yet ‘J’aime La Vie’ by Mathias Sercu is an ode to life: “It is not a film about cancer, but about connection” | Showbiz

‘J’aime La Vie’, the directorial debut of Mathias Sercu, premiered in Ghent on Thursday evening. The film is about a young mother who is struggling with cancer and uses bad news to patch up family pieces. The moving story is given an extra dimension by the director’s personal situation: both brother Sam (56) and son Tore (25) are fighting cancer. “They are both in the film too.”
