While spending a couple of days in the cottage of Sophie's parents nearby a lake, the girls decide to give a party, and Manon and Sophie hitch for a ride to the town in a jeep to buy some beers and supplies and they invite the driver to the party. On the return, the same driver stops the car and later Sophie is found stabbed, raped and covered of blood. Fifteen years later, Manon sees the guy in a car-wash and she invites her former friends to return to the house nearby the lake, where wounds of their traumatic loss are disclosed. Written by

"Elles étaient cinq" was a movie that touched me in several ways: It made me twist on my seat due to the events. It made me rejoice at the marvelous scenery. It made me angry. It made me laugh. It made me feel helpless...
The horrible events stand in sharp contrast to the beauty of the Quebecer landscape which is magnificently illustrated throughout the movie. Although one may not fully enjoy the colorful forests or late summer Montreal when bound to see the terrible events that can happen in the life of young people and the difficulties they experience in trying to cope with it.
This all supported by a great cast and good music adds up to a powerful film that you will not regret watching. (10 out of 10)
