Not for the faint hearted!
3 August 2008 | by (San Diego, California, USA) – See all my reviews

Alzheimers is ugly. Watching someone struggle with its early stages is painful. La Brunante manages to make us part of Madeleine's family, willing her to overcome her condition and her determination to make a graceful exit. The parts are marvelously cast, with Monique Mercure and Suzanne Clément perfectly representing the aging Madeleine and the tortured Zoë.

What a wasted opportunity though, cinematographically. Madeleine and Zoë's journey takes place in some of the most outstandingly beautiful landscape on planet earth. as a backdrop to the action, the Gaspé peninsula could have been featured much more, and could only have enhanced the movie. -1 point for this lapse, otherwise, it was a perfect 10.
