Beautiful arty film
15 October 2001 | by MarioBSee all my reviews

First movie for Guylaine Dionne. She also write it, in a very wonderful way. This is an intimate journey of three generations of women : a little girl, her mother, her grandmother. The journey of the little girl is for the future (searching for her father), the journey of the mother is for the present (shooting photos for her work) and the journey of the grandmother is for her past (looking for her first love). This is a kind of

tender road movie. This is a good piece of art. Cinema is also a way to express the creativity and Guylaine Dionne had done it in a very warm and intelligent way. This is shot in beautiful black and white. I hope to hear again from this talented new director.
