A work of art that immerses you in a time and place so completely that it could be a documentary.
April 16, 2001

Sad and beautiful.

A compelling French Canadian drama.
April 6, 2001
The film seems to be saying, though, that the taking of a life -- whether by murderers or by the state -- is only possible when we refuse to recognize the humanity in others. And this is a message we all need to hear.

An affecting drama.
