La chanson de l'éléphant

Charles Binamé Canada, 2014

Evan Schafer's rating of the film Elephant Song

Aside from the magnificent acting on the part of both Greenwood and Dolan, this film touches on themes of mental illness, death, the impurities and inaccessibility of love, and the inability to process it all in due time. A sad, unpredictable ending accompanies the mysterious time that trails before it, and makes me want to watch again and again to analyze each intricacy that comes embedded in this glorious film.
