      Audience Member really good, a bit depressing Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Un très bon film joué avec brio par Élise Gilbault. Le filme raconte comment une femme a tout perdu à cause de l'alcool. Intéressant, mais dur. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Élise Guilbault est d'une justesse incommensurable dans ce drame sans tambours ni trompettes, qui s'avance avec une blessure en filigrane. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Read all reviews
