I enjoyed this film very much. Zach Braff's character first hits Isabelle Blais's character and then starts to befriend her basically the whole movie. Until his friend sold him out. I was pretty surprised that Isabelle Blais can speak both French & English fluently. Zach Braff was probably the only American in this movie.

Nicely nuanced portrayal of a morally conflicted character. Totally enjoyed watching the psychological dynamics between the main protagonists. Also, the film is almost as bilingual as Bon Cop Bad Cop!

Not a blockbuster, but I enjoyed this movie. Worth the time. Scrubs fans should like seeing Zack in a new role.

Engaging performances by Zach Braff and Isabelle Blais don't save this film, but at least they keep it from becoming a completely self-indulgent emotional mess.

Quite a sad story, but in the end, the right thing was done. A pretty good movie, though a bit depressing.
