A woman for all seasons
22 September 2017 | by peter-hallinan-874-731934See all my reviews

Just had the huge pleasure of seeing this amazingly underrated film at an art cinema in Christchurch, NZ. No publicity or fanfare, it was simply there. Other reviewers have outlined the story, but the major motifs of faith, cultural and generational clashes, feminism, and above all the music - oh! the music! - make this a film not to be missed at any price. I liked every aspect of this French Canadian film. The acting, the script, the costuming, the classical music, the hauntingly beautiful winter landscapes of frozen river and fields. The shadow of change and the pathos and heartbreak on one hand, coupled with the promises and possibilities of new life and growth on the other, left me pondering the eternal questions of life and death. Don't miss it! Please don't miss it!
