A Christmas Tale

Abel and Junon survived a harsh trial in their youth when their oldest son, Joseph, died from a serious genetic disease. Many years have passed and the relationships within the family have become tense. The family meets for Christmas to find out that the matriarch, Junon, is sick too, and only a transplant can save her. Is there a suitable donor? This elaborate family drama is one of the best and most personal films by Desplechin.
