A movie industry that gets better, a new movie that comes out of this!
30 September 2005 | by (Montréal, Canada) – See all my reviews

Familia is a shocking movie that analyse problems families are having in 2005. Missing mother without any money, infidel and greedy father, easily influenced child in crisis, everything is there. It is so actual that some people won't appreciate this movie for its own value because they won't take a necessary step back to see the importance of the problem. This movie is the first movie picture for Louise Archambault but she had only done a short movie called Atomic Sake in 1999. That movie is the beginning of a nice career for her. André Turpin's Wife (Un Crabe Dans la Tête, 2001) was great at directing perfectly the actresses and actors in this movie.

The movie is the story of Michèle (Sylvie Moreau) and her daughter Marguerite (Mylène St-Sauveur) who are moving in Janine's house who has 2 children. Right at the beginning, Janine (Macha Grenon) knows that Michèle is an compulsive and happy person and that her daughter Marguerite will have a bad influence on her own child, Gabrielle (Juliette Gosselin). But she trusts the story of Michèle when she told her that she is hiding from her manipulative husband and that she will move to California when she will have enough money. Janine will find a terrible truth about her her husband, Charles (Vincent Graton), who is isn't as good as the other ones. No one is perfect, and this story shows both sides of the story.

Familia is a movie worth seeing. If he would have been filmed in 2015, it would have thought about the life of people in 2005 and all their secrets. In other words, it has been out at right moment!
