Superb acting by Elise Guibault, whom I do not recall seeing in other QC movies. This was a beautifully made film: slow-paced on the whole, but with moments of real drama. Somewhat Shakespearian, in terms of all the deaths we witness.

In La Donation, the movie begins abruptly; there is not very much backstory. Elise Guilbault keeps the same expression the whole movie, and as a result, always looks pained and slightly vacant. Great plot potential, but a sub-par showing.

This is a touching story which deals with the changes in how we view our surroundings. Things that are important to us change as we grow older and/or with new discoveries.

Excellent film intimiste, extrèmement bien filmé et monté, presque à la manière d'un Chabrol spirituel... A voir!
