"We made this documentary so that people have the means to express themselves on what they would like for the end of life. Let them have all the elements of this question which is so complex", explains Marina Carrère d'Encausse. "To be able to position yourself, you have to be informed," she adds. The bill on the end of life promised by Emmanuel Macron should be debated soon in Parliament.

The ultimate gesture of care offered to patients

"I would like us to stop associating the word 'kill' with this gesture of euthanasia," says Marina Carrère d'Encausse with conviction. She stresses, with regret, the lack of France of support structures for patients to relieve their suffering, commonly known as palliative care.

In the documentary, doctors who have performed euthanasia bring their point of view. Some with masked faces, others with uncovered faces. All testify to "a gesture that is heavy, a very difficult choice", as Marina Carrère d'Encausse recounts, but it is according to them "the ultimate gesture of care offered to patients".

Anne-Elisabeth Lemoine then questions her guest about her ability to practice euthanasia, even if it meant being an outlaw. "For my loved ones, yes," replies the doctor. "I've seen some of my loved ones die badly, really badly. I would be able as a doctor to perform this gesture to relieve unbearable suffering," she continues.

Marina Carrère d'Encausse still wants to specify that this act would be "for patients" and not for relatives. "It's very difficult to see your loved one suffer, it's true, but it's the one who suffers who is to blame," she concludes.
