518    Originally produced by Kino Lorber Edu in 2011. 
520    Café de Flore" is a love story about people separated by 
       time and place but connected in profound and mysterious 
       ways. Atmospheric, fantastical, tragic and hopeful, the 
       film chronicles the parallel fates of Jacqueline, a young 
       mother with a disabled son in 1960s Paris, and Antoine, a 
       recently divorced, successful DJ in present day Montreal. 
       What binds the two stories together is love - euphoric, 
       obsessive, tragic, youthful, timeless love. In 1960s Paris,
       a working class woman gives birth to her first child, 
       Laurent, a Down Syndrome son. Undaunted she embraces the 
       challenge of raising her beloved offspring as normally as 
       one would any other child. Her husband abandons them both.
       She bravely brushes this additional hiccup aside as 
       Laurent replaces her spouse as the perfect man of her 
       dreams. As Laurent approaches school age Jacqueline's 
       aplomb becomes obsessive and cloying. Her increasingly 
       self-destructive attachment to her son is raised to a 
       fever pitch when, at the age of seven, he meets a Down 
       Syndrome girl (Véronique) and experiences his first crush.
       His sudden desire for independence, and his attraction to 
       Véra, are the catalysts that transform Jacqueline from a 
       loving mother into something resembling a lover scorned. 
       What emerges is a love triangle of potentially tragic 
       proportions. In 21st century Montreal, a forty year old 
       divorcee, Carole, is trying to restart her life after her 
       divorce, two years earlier, from Antoine, a devastatingly 
       handsome, successful touring DJ. Soul mates who've been a 
       couple since the age of fifteen, their divorce is a schism
       that might prove impossible for either of them to put in 
       the past. Making the transition even more difficult for 
       Carole is the fact that her two daughters, one teen, one 
       tween, are about to gain a stepmother, a stunningly 
       beautiful, heartbreaking blonde, a woman about to "steal" 
       away the perfect man of her dreams. The young girls are 
       being cruelly pulled in two different directions, 
       Antoine's father, a recovering alcoholic, seems to side 
       with his ex-daughter-in-law, and Carole is succumbing to 
       fits of depression and potentially dangerous bouts of 
       sleepwalking. What emerges is a love triangle of 
       potentially tragic proportions.
