Movie Info

A couple struggles with post-partum depression in this disconcerting drama that breaks the silence on an issue that has plagued Western culture for quite some time despite being rarely discussed in the mainstream media. Pierre (Patrick Goyette) and Elisabeth (Suzie LeBlanc) have just given birth to their birth child. While for most couples this would be a cause for celebration, Pierre and Elisabeth are an exception to the rule: the delivery of their child was especially difficult, and now in order for Elisabeth to fully recover, the new parents will be spending some time in the country with Pierre's mother Louise (Ginette Morin). They stil have not named the baby, which is restless and irritable, and refuses to breastfeed. The stress has taken a visible toll on the parents, and when Pierre returns to work Elisabeth is left to deal with the stress of motherhood alone. As Elisabeth takes to leaving the child with Louise so she can walk next door and spend time with her young neighbor Naomi (Marilou Longpré Pilon), the absent Pierre inadvertently worsens the situations by missing the warning signs that something is seriously amiss. Later, when it comes time to baptize the baby, the despairing Elisabeth feels herself pushed to the breaking point.

Audience Reviews for Lost Song

Rodrigue Jean has produced what I believe is the first major film to look at post partum depression. The result is a terrific look at a baffling condition and what the results of that condition could be.

½

A movie about post-partum depression. I somehow doubt that there is a large market for it, but it is an interesting film, even if only to see the great performance by Suzie LeBlanc as the mother with a new-born. There is not much to add to Flixster's long description.
