Le Choix de Sofia (One Last Thing)

In Alain Deslongchamps’ short film, Le Choix de Sofia (One Last Thing), we meet Sofia (Véronique Gallant), a superwoman at work and in life. Yet, even superheroes have their limits. It’s Friday, and Sofia is asked to put together the presentation of her life for her employer’s board of directors. Heads will roll if she can’t knock it out of the park.

Meanwhile, in the rest of the world, a severe hurricane is about to pound the Florida coast, and the glaciers of Greenland are collapsing. Cut back to Sofia in her car, stuck in Montreal traffic and mentally preparing to work the entire weekend. Of course, she forgot about meeting her friend, Daniela (Meliza Lejeune), that night for dinner and her brother’s party the next day.
After a much-needed shower, Sofia gets dressed for dinner with Daniela. Her plans are interrupted by a call from her boss (Ray Blaze), “Oh, one last thing…”

“Sofia is asked to put together the presentation of her life for her employer’s board of directors.”

One Last Thing calls out the growing and very real “climate anxiety” that is sweeping over the world. As we live our very stressful personal lives, we find ourselves detached from the bigger problem of climate change, playing subliminally in the background.

As Sofia, Véronique Gallant walks us through the slow progressive walk toward burnout, when our body and mind hit that wall of burnout. One Last Thing is decidedly an environmental tale as an insignificant marketing specialist in Montreal realizes that the world is in trouble because of climate change, and nothing is being done about it.

One Last Thing is a cautionary tale of our environmental future. The short film tells an empathetic story that will speak to those concerned about our environmental future. The question is whether it will move the needle for those who don’t.
