A woman and her bottle
21 May 2001 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

It is the story of the life of Paulette that has a drinking problem. We see the evolution of her problem since a very young age. It is not really a film about a social issue, it is more about Paulette herself, her personal problems. Many women were attending this film. Better to see that than a crappy american film.
