Richly deserving of its best director award at Locarno in 2008. Denis Cote has become one of Canada's finest directors evidenced well by this picture and the recent "Curling". Cote is a master of mood, pacing and apprehension. Great script that doesn't feel it has to explain things away and credits the viewer with some intelligence. Wonderful b&w cinematography by Josee Deshaies. Well worth seeking out.
