There are very few Quebec movies that I like, but this one definitely was worthy. It's a drama, following a ditzy and frivolous mother who tries to build herself a new life after 10 years of prison, in hopes of getting her daughter back. Celine Bonier really shows how great of an actress she is, playing that mother full of sweet innocence, who only wants to do good while all of her life crumbles around her. You can't help but feel sad for her, no matter what terrible thing she has done in the past, and the movie does a great job at keeping a little mystery as to what is the real truth until the ending. Some points remain obscure in regards to the relation between the protagonist and some of the secondary characters, but the movie obviously focuses on the mother/daughter relation, keeping the other characters in background for story continuity. It's an excellent movie regardless, with convincing characters, a realistic tone and an unfolding great in emotions.
