Downbeat, low-budget drama, mildly interesting
14 October 2007 | by highwaytouristSee all my reviews

This is alleged to be based on a true story. It's about a young French-Canadian woman named Monique, who is haunted by witnessing her mother's death by shooting as a small child, and that the trauma continues to haunt and damage her. One day, she meets a man who seems to be everything she has hoped for and they marry. But the marriage begins to fail and he stays out late at night, leaving her lonely and wondering what he's doing. When she investigates, she discovers he has a secret life, and the discovery causes her to descend into psychosis. The low budget shows, although Florence Giorgetti gives a compelling performance in the lead role, and the supporting cast is passable. The film sometimes is interesting, especially with the hidden theme of history repeating itself for the tormented Monique. If the story is true, one wonders how she is doing now, years after the events took place.
