Against the backdrop of the devastating September 11 attacks, Alain and his son, Georges, find themselves always one step behind, as fierce hatred turns into destructive obsession. A father and a brother want their Kelly back; however, is the young woman they seek, the woman they lost?Written by

I saw this film with no knowledge of it beforehand, and it was a great surprise.
The film's look and feel is beautiful, reminding me of Rust and Bone in tone and feel. The score and soundtrack also suitably served the film, reminding me of the score for 'Seven' in places, the ominous strings swell and suggest the dread and uncertainty that the family are going through as their lives unravel. And then there's the subject matter, which in this day and age is very hard to tackle especially in the current climate.
This is a thoughtful and beautiful film that touches on a very complex issue and is expertly paced. A real treat.
