I was not too enchanted by this movie. I think it brings back Québec cinema to the 70's. There's nothing wrong with that but the film lose points on originality.
One aspect of the film that makes it worth seeing is the acting. Marie-Ève Bertrand delivers a strong performance as Yvonne, the young un-married woman who now seems out of place at the family home. Guylaine Cloutier too is good as Yvonne's sister, Hélène.
The cinematography is nice but not great. It could have been a lot better. The themes studied are not new but are well develop, with a touch of mysticism.
Out of 100, I gave this one 72. That's good for ** out of **** stars.
Seen in Toronto, at the Carleton Odeon Cinemas, on March 16th, 2002.
