Drame psychologique. À la mort de sa mère, Chantal, une adolescente montréalaise n'ayant aucune affinité avec son père, fugue et prend le chemin de la Gaspésie. Son but: retrouver une plage dont la défunte, peu avant de mourir, lui avait montré la photo. Mais ses recherches sur la berge sont infructueuses et ses ressources financières, vite épuisées. Alors qu'elle dort au bord de la route, Serge, un fermier taciturne, la recueille et l'emmène chez lui. Dès le lendemain, il accepte d'engager Chantal pour l'aider avec les tâches quotidiennes qu'il assume seul depuis la mort de ses parents. Tandis que la soeur de Serge, cohéritière de la ferme, lui met la pression afin qu'ils vendent la propriété criblée de dettes, Chantale et Serge forgent une intimité platonique fondée sur le silence et la musique du quotidien. [(c) Médiafilm]. Contient un documentaire sur les coulisses de la réalisation. [SDM]

A wonderful film about two fiercely independent people who come to accept each other slowly over time. While there is not a lot of dialogue, there is much said with it's absence. It was easy for me to just allow the film take me along at it's own pace, and the scenery of the Gaspe was breathtaking. Hopefully, there will be a sequel sometime as the ending left me wanting more.

This has the look of a first film: very self-conscious, with weak editing: all those endless clouds, all that wind and water, all those silences in which we are asked to invest much meaning. That's why I was surprised to learn that Cathérine Martin, the réalisatrice, has made feature films before this. Her story is not bad and the hints about the reason for the Chantal's fragility are kept oblique, as they should be. The actors are also up to the job. But the film could have turned out a lot better with a lighter directorial hand. Still, worth a look.
