Words are not enough
14 July 2013 | by karina-luziaSee all my reviews

The cast is just amazing, each one of them are so real you can project yourself in their inner conflict without any problem. They're giving us the space to really understand what's going on emotionally. The acting is "magistral", sensitive yet not dramatic. Jean-Pierre Bergeron took a subject that could easily be heavy and transformed it in something light and funny to watch, the message go trough so easily. I liked the simplicity of the film, the characters are people like you and I, the focus is on the main line of the story, nothing to take your attention elsewhere.

It's a pleasure to watch, I REALLY enjoyed it. Hope you will as well! :)
