Review

The sixth feature of Quebec’s representative filmmaker Francois Delisle. After the missing of their son Hugo, Christophe and Irene remain separated. Christophe’s life in Mexico is a total disaster but Irene returned to her chorus. The sudden news of finding the boy’s remains shakes the couple’s life. When they met again in Montreal, they heard a shocking story about their son. Basically, the film is a love story based on sympathy and healing. It is also an initiation film for adults. After confronting the harsh reality of taking their son’s life, the couple could come out of their problem. Brilliant black-and-white scenes play a very important role in pulling the subdued story. The film talks about the loss of loved ones, the process of overcoming, the possibility of reconciliation, the admission and acceptance of death and the recovery of will to live. (JANG Byungwon)
