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

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.
