♦ Kuessipan ***
by Myriam Verreault
Quebec film – 1 h 57
Kuessipan is the beautiful story of a long-term friendship, shaken by the ups and downs of life. Above all, it preserves itself from the usual commonplaces about the Aboriginals. A magnificent and poetic film interpreted by non-actors recruited from the Uashat reserve, and produced with local technicians.
