Luc leads a peaceful life with his wife Stephanie, a sports instructor, in the wonderful region of Charlevoix in Quebec. A splendid wife, beautiful house, faithful friends, hunting, skiing, hockey - a perfect life, one would say.

While honored in Paris for his career as an architect, he accidentally meets Lindsay, a woman he once knew -met while he was in Toronto to participate on a jury. He remembers their story of love fulgurate they lived on two nights. Caught in a triangle of emotions, he puts everything in jeopardy to pursue her as his seemingly-perfect life begins to fall apart.

Luc Sauvageau: In the centuries that follow, a civilization is always judged by its architecture. Building is an activity of hope. The hope that what we create will be useful and beautiful. The hope of telling future generations who we were. And the hope they will be moved, as we were by the architecture of those who came before us. Thank you.

Not at all satisfied!
26 January 2020 | by memollSee all my reviews

I loved all the beauty I saw in this film. But apart from the gorgeous views and buildings and good music, what else does the film have to bring? Telling the sad story of our today's society is important, but let's not pretend that everything is fine and we should accept and live with it! I don't want to spoil it, so I'll let you watch and judge!
