"An evocative elegy to a dying form of travel, Océan follows the train of the same name from Montreal to Halifax, stopping along the way to discover the railway's impact there. Martin's graceful composition of shots and exquisite sense of duration and movement make Océan a breathtaking experience and instill a desire to return to a more elegant mode of travel."
