Plot: On a dairy farm in the Eastern Townships, in the middle of a drought and while the land is parching, a drama will disrupt the life of the Santerre family.
Review: “Wetlands” is the promising first feature film from French-canadian Guy Edoin. The plot unfolds the bitter story of a family of farmers in Quebec, who are trying to do their best to avoid bankruptcy. All gets worse when an accident kills the man of the house, who leaves behind a pregnant wife and a disoriented son. The arrival of a stranger offering help will then bring even more trouble. The content is rich and we can glimpse anger, anguish, loss, opportunism, forgiveness and search for sexual identity in a quiet but incisive film.Relevant awards: -
