This film could've been award-worthy had it not been for the atrocious editing, some major plot and technical issues with the screenplay, and novice-apparent directing.
Had it not been for the exceptional cinematography by Ruben Impens with the stellar visuals and landscapes, and the amazing acting by Matthias Schoenaerts, this film would've flopped. I like Bruce Dern, but he was annoying in this film - probably from the lack of proper direction from actress-turned-director and writer Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre. The pacing and run time were decent, as was the score.
Nevertheless, and enjoyable film and a solid 7/10 from me.
