Quote:
"In my mind, the film not only represents one of the more elegant and creatively innovative reworkings of cinematic language to have been produced in this country (and in Quebec), but—and here lies its importance—it speaks directly to women of women's psychic space and emotional experience. The film traces, with a great deal of sensitivity and love, the empathetic and emotionally-charged nature of women's relationships to each other and dares to construct an incredibly resonant portrait of a woman as an independent and willful producer, and not simply a bearer of meaning."
