Pierre and Elisabeth, a couple in their thirties, move with their baby into a cottage on a lake for the summer. The setting is idyllic, and the couple's happiness seems within reach. Every day, Pierre goes to work in the city while Elisabeth rehearses for an upcoming voice recital. Despite the benevolent presence of her mother-in-law who lives in the neighbouring house, the yong woman feels isolated and overwhelmed in her new role as a a mother. Her entourage is concerned, but no one fully grasps the extent of Elisabeth's distress. Muted violence soon takes hold and tightens it`s grip.

An excellent take on postnatal depression and its toll on a young family taking time off in cottage country Quebec. Suzie Leblanc, Canadian soprano, took on her first acting role and did an excellent job in playing the affected young mother. Good acting by all and solid directing by Rodrigue Jean. A not-very-well-advertized Canadian gem of a movie. It is slow and attention demanding, but ultimately rewarding.

I couldn't bring myself to watch this movie for more than 15 minutes. I took the warning of 'muted violence soon takes hold' in the description and gave it a pass.
