Very touching portrayal of a struggling dad
21 March 2017 | by joemcdermott-17329See all my reviews

I happened across this on a air Canada flight and only watched it as there was nothing else I hadn't seen. Glad I did. A very touching portrayal of a family with issues and how they struggle on. I don't wish to give away the plot but the acting is first class - the daughter with the tic is outstanding. I don't speak French so I watched with subtitles but it stil had me in tears a couple of times. Any parent who watched it and doesn't at least get a lump in there throats isn't being a parent at all. Brilliant
