Great movie with sensational music.
8 September 2016 | by pam009See all my reviews

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.
