A fascinating movie
30 December 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Another wonderful drama out of Quebec - not enough recognition is given to the caliber of acting in this movie. Roy Dupuis of course is well known for his dramatic talent but Karine Vanasse also did a very credible job for one so young and inexperienced.

Without giving away any plot detail, here is another classic example of a man without soul. What goes around comes around and the moral in the story is not belaboured but left to the watchers intelligence.

Beautiful scenery and a good depiction of the hardship that the early Quebec settlers endured.

Once again, this is a movie well worth seeing and you won't be wasting your money on it.
