Marie Deschamps, a 20 year old French-Canadian girl, quits college to go travel and learn English in Western Canada. Her journey will bring her up to Whistler, British Columbia, where she will meet other young people a little lost, just like her. Somewhere out West, these people and this adventure will change her life forever.Written by
Great film by first time director Dany Papineau!! A cross country odyssey and journey of the heart. The ski and snowboard sequences are breathtaking making anyone who has ever dreamt of Going West clamour to throw their skis or snowboard on the roof of the car and start driving! A real achievement and coming of age story that will pull at your heart strings and inspire the adventurer within you.
Mirian Brulé and Dany Papineau bring a realistic and accessible humanity to the story. Their charisma and chemistry on screen are engaging, believable and innocent. There are films that have aimed to capture the essence of Canada in the past but 2 Frogs succeeds in capturing the true imagination, bilingual tapestry and unforgettable landscapes that make this country so special.
