Story that makes me think of a classic Agatha Christie

A real fun and intricate story, with wonderful characters! it was a real treat to watch. A classic in it's genre, full of intensity, humour and mystery.

It takes place somewhere in Canada in winter time. The scenery is fully rendered to it's delicate splendour thanks to a wonderful cinematography. But really the story is a universal one and has nothing to do with Canada per say. The plot turns and twist in surprising directions holding the viewer and his breath glued to his seat with excitement and wonder. The acting is nothing short of wonderful in it's freshness and creativity. It's a real entertaining film in the classic sense. A real treat to the viewer and a tour de force by it's author/ director.
