2007. Canada. Written and directed Bernard Émond. With Guylaine Tremblay, Guy Jodoin, Gildor Roy. One night in a wealthy neighborhood, a distraught and blood-splattered middle-aged woman stands in a driveway shooting at a house. Émond, known to Canadian Front audiences for his 20h17 rue Darling, traces the woman's descent into rage. In a work about grace without salvation, social forces (the practices of conglomerates) and destiny (unexpected illness) conspire to undermine the hopes, dreams, and faith of a woman who was once supportive and loyal. In French; English subtitles. 89 min.
