Quotes

Roman: How does that happen?
Lucy: The tide gets too high. They do this every Spring. They cross the river to get to the other side, and one leads. The second one follows the first one. The third one follows that second one. Sometimes there's thousands of them. And if the first one loses ground, then it's over. The second one becomes the leader and he loses ground. And the third one follows him and loses ground. And it keeps going like that until they all drown.

Amazing film well deserving of festival awards
19 September 2016 | by See all my reviews

This was my favorite film from the 2016 Cannes Film Festival; and a must see. The entire audience loved it and it was shown in what was likely one of the largest theaters I had been in prior to Cannes. The plot and shots make it seem very Canadian, but it is a great film and should be watched by everyone.

It is well written, directed and the cast does a very good job. The cinematography is great and does a good job at immersing the audience in the story.

The director is now one that I will follow.

Thanks for making such a wonderful film.
