To watch with ur heart
8 February 2021 | by shiva_bSee all my reviews

A movie about two best friends from one of Quebec's Innu community. This movie was an adaptation of the Innu writter Naomie Fontaine and I must say that I now have to read the book. It's too bad there wasn't too much publicity for it or just for a short moment. The actors were authentic. I laughed, I cried, all I can add is, what a beautiful movie !
