Winner of the Ecumenical Prize at the 2005 Locarno Film Festival, this absorbing drama features a towering performance by Élise Guilbert as a suicidal doctor. Her chance encounter with a young grocery clerk on a pilgrimage to pray for his dying grandmother forces her to re-think her life. Intelligent, rewarding and deeply affecting.
