Storyline

How to go on living afterwards? It is the end of winter. A young violinist is murdered in her apartment by a stranger. Her mother is in shock. Devastated by the violent death of her daughter, she decides to leave Montréal and take refuge, alone, in Kamouraska, at the country house built by her maternal ancestors and inherited from her mother. She tries to rebuild an interior life by re-establishing contact with Nature, with the house, and with the objects that remind her of her childhood and that of her daughter. But the mother's grief is profound: she doesn't want to go on living. In extremis, she is discovered and saved in the forest by a man while she was letting herself freeze to death. They recognize each other: they knew each other as teenagers. They can't help letting the amorous feelings of those times resurface. The presence of this man and the benevolent spirits of her grandmother, mother and daughter, all dead yet still present for her, help her regain her equilibrium and ... Written by Anonymous

I thought I would not like this film as it deals with the death of someone's child, afraid it would be depressing. In fact it was the opposite. The film maker is actually very careful to not get maudlin or sentimental and focuses instead on the mother's grieving process. However the superb acting of Guylaine Tremblay manages to convey a lot without excess emotion, we see the internal struggles not the external emotions. As well the winter St. Lawrence provides an other worldly setting that is apart from the every day world. Much of the picture is the main character herself alone in that world, which was excellent at conveying the separateness of those who grieve, how they are apart from the rest of us. The use of music throughout, the natural setting and the creative images provided by beloved relatives who have passed provided a depth that was letter perfect. The director Catherine Martin also provides an ending that is also perfect for this film. Overall a film that leaves images and sound resonating after you watch it.
