Deep and difficult
6 December 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Interesting little french-Canadian movie with many layers to the story and strong scenes interspersed in this otherwise slightly common tale of 'low-lives' mixed in the prostitution world.

A lost book of women is the mystery of the story, but it is more about loss of innocence and loss of identity. The characters are complex and have many more thoughts and emotions underneath what they are showing which allows for much interpretation and appreciation of human complexity and inconsistency.

Sometimes funny or sad, it is ultimately revealing, including a great surprise ending. Pick it up for an interesting dark thriller that will leave you thinking like it did me (still a couple weeks after I saw it). It resonates with our dreams and failures.
