Official synopsis

Suzanne and Édouard have loved each other for over 60 years in their small apartment overlooking a main road. One morning, Édouard suddenly dies and Suzanne has to deal with a technological world she doesn’t understand. Ten years later, in 2024, Suzanne downloads the "The Day Today" application, which allows her to get back in touch with her loved ones. Edouard returns, but he's not quite the same.

The programmer’s eye

The film tells a story of mourning but above all of mad love, one that survives beyond death, thanks to app technology. “The Day Today” manages to find a clever alchemy between its raw documentary material and the special effects of new technologies that allow everyone to amplify their lives. At last! Science fiction films have arrived in suburban areas, where small miracles are possible. I had given up on that hope. Further proof that love is stronger than anything. — Natacha Seweryn
