Superbly poignant, heartwrenching!
27 November 1998 | by (Vancouver, Canada) – See all my reviews

Possibly the best Canadian film ever shot! This warm, real look at WW2 life abroad and on the home front is a visual and an emotional tour de force.

The tensions on the home front (husband missing in action; wife living with in-laws) and the inner conflicts gripping a woman determined to be loyal yet needing an identity of her own have rarely been more skilfully portrayed.

A must for collectors -- if it could only be made available as DVD or Laserdisk!!!
