A realistic, absorbing "docudrama"
3 February 1999 | by (Victoria B.C.) – See all my reviews

Not to be confused with the 1997 comedy of the same name, this gritty Canadian production reminds me of the no-nonsense social dramas once turned out by British studios prior to the sixties.

For unblinking looks at the real world, it seems we now have to look to Canadian producers for drama that reflects what can happen to ordinary people.

The family depicted here, could be any family..loving Mom and Dad, three kids, one grown and married, one at school, one in kindergarden. At least one of the children is a "problem" child.

The movie tells the story of what happens when one of the children, accuses one of the parents of incest...once the accusation is made, true or false, nothing can ever be the same again...everyone's life is altered, the immediate family, their friends, relatives, schoolmates, all are affected.

The movie does not sensationalize the necessary sexual content of the movie, but neither is it coy about going into detail about a grim fact of life...that parents are capable of sexually abusing their children, and/or that children are capable of falsely accusing adults, of that offence.

This movie reminds me of an even grimmer movie on the subject "The Pony Cart" again, a Canadian production of many years ago, which I also highly recommend, if ever you get a chance to see it.
