In a small economically depressed northern Canadian town, a teenage girl disappears without a trace, a lady investigator who is sent in from Montreal must deal with disturbing facts, the strangeness of the place, and a religious cult.
A well produced mystery period piece that spans important events (The French Revolution, the rise of Napoleon Bonaparte), the film is tripped by its barely coherent global narrative linking some good scenes. A viewer has to ask what the larger point is, and is left with abundant head scratching moments. On the other hand, this is also a good example of how making a mystery too mysterious (even though it might not really matter) can backfire.
