[Its] glacial pace, bloodless performances and minimalist architecture will likely assure it a place in the archives of Forgotten Canadian Cinema.

With a synth-pop soundtrack against a dreary winter backdrop, Stephane Lafleur crafts a sharply funny portrait of prosaic life that's not without moments of light and magic.

The film may be a bit too understated for some viewers, but a bigger message about the ties that bind is there to be seen under the low-key events.
