This 2008 film from Canada was not known to me until I stumbled on it in a local library. The name Suzie LeBlanc got my attention as I know her to be a soprano and have enjoyed her singing in the past. This film was her first attempt at acting and I think she did a good job at it.
"Lost Song" deals with postnatal depression that wrecked the life of a young woman and the lives that surround her. The topic was subtly handled. Much was not explained well (e.g. the sexual problem between her and her husband) but that only added to the intrigue of the film and did not impair its merits.
I find it to be a good watch. There were some erotic moments too, and the occasional singing by LeBlanc. All these add to the charm of the film. I wish this film has been better advertised so more people know about it. Recommended for people who is not looking for fast action or a rowdy story, but a very low-key and yet sensitive approach to a subject we all have heard about. Solid directing and acting by all.
