Very good quality film
25 November 2001 | by (Cap-de-la-Madeleine, Canada) – See all my reviews

Impressive firt movie for director Louis Bélanger. This is a slow and strange drama, about the solitude of a aging man and

the puirsuit of happinness for a young woman. Very good work from the two stars, Arcand and Moreau, and a wonderful sense of images from the director. Intelligent use of the music, mostly accoustic blues. The film is a little bit bluesy too! Movie like this one, and many others over the ten last years, makes us proud of the cinema in Québec and in Canada.
