Movie Info

A young man struggling with the trails of growing up must also deal with a family tragedy in this drama. Jean (Luc Picard) and Marie (Pascale Bussières) are a couple who run a small farm in Quebec. They have a 17-year-old son, Simon (Gabriel Maille), but while they expect him to do his share of work on the farm, Simon has no interest in agriculture, is prone to typically adolescent mood swings, and is still dealing with the loss of his younger brother, who died in an accident while Simon was supposed to be watching him. When another accident on the farm claims Jean, Simon becomes even harder to reach emotionally, and Marie struggles with resentment towards her child as she tries to keep the farm afloat despite a failing economy and a drought. Simon tries to help his mother in a time of crisis, yet he's troubled by the arrival of a scruffy new farmhand (Francois Papineau), who is clearly attracted to Marie, especially since she doesn't shrink from his advances. Marécages (aka Wetlands) was the first feature film from writer and director Guy Edoin. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
