I saw this film about a year ago, and I found it very good. Not because of the action, but because of the introspection it causes. Élise Guilbert was outstanding in her role, as was Patrick Drolet. Bernard Émond didn't make a movie for a specific demographic, which is becoming more and more common even here, he wrote a movie about something that matters to him. Even though he is an admitted atheist, his movie revolves around the first of the three theological virtues, that of faith, and how it can be misplaced, misjudged, and yet so ingrained in our heritage.
The movie didn't try to play on clichés, nor did it try to explain and justify everything. It simply tells a good story, and Élise Guilbert will be back in the third film of the triptychch, the second one, CONTRE TOUTE ESPÉRANCE, is coming out on August 17th, and deals with Hope. I look forward to seeing it.
