“To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.” And Gaétan was a man who lives in hearts. Gaétan, who loved cowboy movies. Gaétan, who one day went out to spread manure, broke his pelvis on a tractor wheel and never came back. His death weighed heavily on director Claudie Lévesque’s family. As she questions them one by one, her family members calmly and serenely recount a snippet from the past, recreating Gaétan’s life in bits and pieces, but also delivering simple and moving reflections on life and death. In 17 stylized home movie reels, the film follows the thread of a painful life, with an ingenuity of form and singular sense of rhythm.
