The effortlessly happy marriage of Bordeaux-based couple Hélène (Vicky Krieps, PHANTOM THREAD) and Mathieu (Gaspard Ulliel, SAINT LAURENT) is turned upside down when 33-year-old Hélène is diagnosed with a rare and devastating illness. Making an existential choice that will forever test the strength of their relationship, she journeys alone to Norway, hoping to reclaim the autonomy that her disease threatens to strip away. Elegantly lensed and featuring exquisite turns from both Krieps and the late Ulliel—in what would tragically be his final role—Emily Atef’s MORE THAN EVER is a deeply empathetic and quietly life-affirming tale of love and loss.
