Produced by Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne, 40 LOVE is the story of a father and son who are both trying to transcend their current reality to achieve their dreams. After losing his job as senior executive in a large chain store, J©♭r©þme is determined to start his own new business, despite the concerns of his wife. Their son Ugo, though only 11, already shows great promise as a future tennis pro, and hopes to get accepted to the national training center at Roland-Garros. Father and son are very close emotionally yet unable to really understand each other. Meanwhile the gaps between J©♭r©þme and his wife are insidiously widening. Together, Ugo and J©♭r©þme begin to realize that not all rules can be bent in the quest for success. "An impressive, low-key thriller... a remarkable debut." - Variety "An intriguing family sports drama. The way the filmmakers find parallels between a father falling from grace, and a son rising toward it, is captivating." - The Hollywood Reporter
