L’Chaim! is a glimpse into the

unusual life of Chaim Lubelski.

He had a wild past as a hippy in Germany, London and Paris, before he became a millionaire in New York and a professional chess player in St. Tropez. When his mother needs care, Chaimᅠdecides to move in with her into the elderly home in Antwerp.


He cares for her around-the-clock with remarkable joy, lots of laughter and singing. Shaped by his mother’s history as a Holocaust survivor, Chaim feels his mission is to ease her pain. The film is an intimate story about altruistic love and deep humanity. Furthermore, the film demonstrates how the trauma of war still affects the everyday life of the next generation. Despite everything, Chaim rejects the role of victim. He chooses instead to accept his legacyᅠwith deep faith, love and humor.
