| Beautiful cinematography, very good acting
This movie received more than a dozen international awards. J.A. Martin is a photograph who, every year, leaves his wife and children and go on a long tour of rural Québec to meet his clients. But this time, his wife wants to be part of the trip. After 15 years of marriage, it's a good way for them to open themselves to one and other.

The cinematography is superb in this movie. The camera work is fantastic and the picturesque rural Québec is beautiful. The acting is also very good with Marcel Sabourin playing J.A. Martin, a man who doesn't say much and keep everything to himself. Monique Mercure plays his wife. She's more energetic then her husband and she see the occasion to make him talk a little bit more.

The only drawback of this movie: it's sometimes too slow, way too slow. I actually had to struggle through the first half hour of the movie. I had to fight fatigue. Even in the rest of the film, some scenes could have been shorter.

8 out of 10.
