  • FISCHER's rating of the film The Woman Who Drinks

    Echafaudé avec intelligence et doigté sur le principe d'une construction anachronique, en longs flash-back illustrant par touches sobres et révélatrices de la lente glissade vers un alcoolisme quotidien et faussement salvateur, ce premier long métrage de fiction d'un metteur en scène canadien incontournable, brille par sa qualité scénaristique et l'interprétation majeure de ses acteurs principaux. www.cinefiches.com
