Les êtres chers

Anne Émond Canada, 2015

msmichel's rating of the film Our Loved Ones

Magnificent second feature from director Anne Emond who far surpasses her debut 'Nuit #1'. The story, spanning over 20 years, follows a seemingly ideal Quebecois family living in the lower St. Lawrence valley overcoming the death of the family patriarch. The youngest has a family of his own but melancholy is just under the service. Well written and exceptionally performed that captures family, secrets and depression
