This first feature film by Josephine Mackerras is a beautiful story of initiation about a woman who takes back her life after everything has been stolen by her husband. The subject, however touchy, is treated in a forward-thinking and complex way. Mackerras has obviously put all her heart and voice in her work. She keeps away from all judgment and leads us irresistibly alongside the heroine, Alice. This leading role is remarkably interpreted, and the whole cast is worth an Oscar. Mackerras' direction of actors is of rare precision and richness, which leads us to laugh and cry with particularly endearing characters. The photography is gorgeous. It's a film about love of life, women's empowerment, and the strength it takes to get up -- a film for our time.
