The film starts of a bit choppy as the transitions between the years are sudden and confusing. This settles down as the story begins to flow and Suzanne's life altering mistakes take hold.

This intelligent, insightful gem presents a series of snapshots of a disintegrating family, blending acute social vision with heartbreaking intimacy, cementing Quillévéré's reputation as one of France's most remarkable young film-makers.
