A superb little film which starts out slowly and gently enthrals you. Am very happy that EPL has it for us to enjoy and appreciate.

Superb acting by Elise Guibault, whom I do not recall seeing in other QC movies. This was a beautifully made film: slow-paced on the whole, but with moments of real drama. Somewhat Shakespearian, in terms of all the deaths we witness.

This is a touching story which deals with the changes in how we view our surroundings. Things that are important to us change as we grow older and/or with new discoveries.
