I just watched this very absorbing, interesting film. I don't agree with the people who think that it was too slow. It just evolved as most French films do. I was a bit disappointed in the ending which was also rather typically French, quite abrupt, although everything did wrap up properly.
I also enjoyed the extras with the interview of the writer/director Alanté Kavaïté and the actress Émilie Dequenne
Two questions. Does anyone recognize the songs that were used in the film? Were they in English? I couldn't actually understand any of it. Also, does anyone know the filming locations for this? I believe they said Normandy or Brittany, but I couldn't tell.
