A Beautiful Integration of Sight and Sound
26 July 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This impressive French-Canadian film tells the story of a simple place and the years it endured. A lumberman cuts a tree and crafts some of the wood into a striking rocking chair. We are let into the world of the chair, which endures for decades. The people come and go and the environment adapts, but the chair lives on (some close calls at times). I thought that folk music and the wispy watery effects were marvelous.
