Simple Story with Stunning Cinematography
12 June 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A 23 year-old drifter out-of-towner is drawn to a small town and befriends a 14 year-old girl who is more than willing to be shown the ins and outs of experiencing life a little more... but is it too much more? The story unfolds slowly. It is very simple and revolves around relatively uneventful every day adolescent life. The acting of the two female leads is noteworthy and forms the backbone of the intimate interaction with the viewer. There is a bit more spice to the storyline, but it is not what makes this film especially remarkable.

Rafaël Ouellet is the real revelation here. He is the writer, director and most importantly cinematographer of this visual feast. From plush scenery to mostly dark scenes contrasted by light interest, his composition is of high artistic value. Great use of focus and out-of-focus, light saturation, panning and framing. He put things in and out of frame elegantly to tell the story with the camera. His point of views often tell more than the dialogue.

Lasting ephemeral images. A cinematic painting.
