In a small convent school in rural Quebec, Mother Augustine provides a musical education to young women no matter their socio-economic background. However, with the looming changes brought by Vatican II and Quebec's Quiet Revolution, the school's future is at peril.
Just viewed "The Passion of Augustine" on TV5Monde tonight from India. Feeling very proud of Lysandre Ménard, pianist as she have showed your passion mixed with years of practice and learning music with utmost devotion. Her acting is also very beautiful as her look and personality. Hope she will be a great actor and famous musician of the world.
Also wish to thank Céline Bonnier for her beautiful and sensitive act in the film, to Léa Pool for her extraordinary direction and Daniel Jobin for the stunning camera angles.
It is not easy to find this film, so if you have a chance to see it, you are a very lucky person.
