This film will last in your memory
28 April 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This beautifully made film is poignant, and will live on in your memory long after you have seen it.

I saw it on television ten years ago, and I still remember it and wanted to vote for it when I actually got round to recording my opinion on IMDB.

The plot follows to girls from Quebec and reflects the 'pass on by' attitude to those in need of the 1980s, and I am sorry to say also of today. Well worth a watch.
