Covered in blood, Réjeanne Poulin is in a near comatose state as she, a suspect, is being questioned by the police into the death of her husband, Gilles Dubuc, whose gunshot dead body was found in their home. After she is transferred to a psychiatric hospital and as the police investigate the death, Réjeanne and Gilles' story is told in flashback starting approximately two years earlier when they, then a telephone operator and a long haul trucker respectively both who were making a decent living, bought their modest dream house in idyllic Beloeil, Québec, just outside of Montréal. Their world as they know it starts to disintegrate first when Gilles suffers a stroke. Although Réjeanne can handle the additional work during his recuperation, it's his despondent nature that is more difficult with which to deal.

I saw it on TV; I would have gladly paid the ticket.
18 January 2010 | by (Ottawa, Canada) – See all my reviews

I put contains spoiler just to be on the safe side, since from the beginning of the movie we know how it will end; through the movie we will learn the details.

I just saw this movie on a movie channel at which I do not subscribe, but for some reason the cable company gave me free access for a month. I had just finished watching another movie, and more for inertia than anything else, I did not change channels. I am glad I did not. This is the type of movies that justify not only making movies, but also going out to watch them. The are few characters, and their work of the actors is subdued. It describes a particular couple, but it is something that could happen anywhere to anyone, and indeed has happened and is happening.

I will try to see more movies by this director.
