“Its Only The End Of The World” stars Marion Cotillard, Léa Seydoux and Gaspard Ulliel as a terminally ill writer who returns home after a long absence to tell his family that he is dying after 12 years of absence. As resentment soon rewrites the course of the afternoon, fits and feuds unfold, fueled by loneliness and doubt, while all attempts of empathy are sabotaged by people’s incapacity to listen and love.
