The theme of this movie his faith.
13 September 2005 | by (Vaudreuil-Dorion , Québec, Canada) – See all my reviews

La Neuvaine won 3 awards in Italy last august, including a well deserve acting award for Patrick Drolet. Elyse Guilbault should have won also. Very slow pace movie. We witness the meeting of a religious young man and a woman doctor who does not believe in God. She wants to commit suicide, he wants his grand-mother to survive her terminal illness. The acting is superb. A well written script and a beautiful cinematography help us not to forget a thought provoking film. I went to see the film with friends and we talked about it at least an hour long after the viewing. I hope it gets the recognition it deserves in Canada, the States and the world.
