A good film by Lea Pool that explores a family that has had mom leave for supposedly brighter prospects in the midst of the 1960s. An unusual circumstance for the ages leads to unusual behaviour by the kids.

I was so surprised by Marianne Fortier's acting (who played in the horrible Aurore), she was such a natural in this movie! The story was great and original (yet similar to most of the stories from LÃ (C)a Pool's family), and it was very enjoyable.
