Also quite gritty.

This had the makings of that caliber of movie but it was not as entertaining; it never got going.

Church does a good job acting in it.

"You know, they say, that every guilty person is his own hangman. They also say that tomorrow will be a better day." Bruce (Church) is a snowplow operator in the cold desolate Quebec woods. He spends his nights alone with a bottle. One night when the two mixed he winds up accidentally killing someone. Rather then do what is right he decides to do what he can to cover it up. While he thinks of ways to hide what he did he begins to remember the man he killed and the events leading up to the tragedy. This is a hard movie to review and explain. The movie is good and Church is great in it but on the other hand it is pretty slow moving and not much happens. The movie reminded me a lot of A Single Shot which came out a few months ago. Both deal with accidental killings and the lengths these loners will go to to cover up what they did from the world but are unable to run away from it mentally. If you liked the Single Shot movie you will enjoy this. For everyone else it is one you will either like or one you may not be able to finish. Give it a chance though you may be surprised. Overall, good acting and Church does such a great job that it's almost worth watching just for him. I give this a B-.

Could not say this film plods as other reviews here insist as it was so goddam moving. Do Not Drink And Drive. Don't Ever.( Yakking On A Cell-Phone is just as distracting.) And another thing- Dont Stand In The Middle Of The Road especially when a truck is approaching,in the dark, in a blizzard. The plot is not as simple as a hit and run then running away in guilt. Hence the flashbacks as the driver goes over in his head the what and whys since he'd been livng with the victim for a few days before the accident. That is all i will say without going into a spoiler.But plenty of plot material fills out the film regarding what's going through his mind and i empathised with him throughout.
Great acting all round and the bitter cold in the forest is a perfect analogy for how he inwardly sets himself so alone from community. A complex film because of the victim himself.
I love realistic films and it certainly is. Also quite gritty.Moving.

I saw this at the Vancouver Film Festival and am so glad I did. It was a slower paced movie, but not plodding. Set in the dead dark of winter of Quebec, this film drew me in and spoke to my Midwestern roots. The movie would retrace something that happened earlier to give you a clue as to what happened, in other words it is not filmed in chronological order. Makes it really interesting. Beautiful scenery, yet a little depressing how madness took over. I liked this movie. Give it a chance, you won't be on the edge of your seat but in my case, I was kept interested all throughout the film.

An oddball flick that made the wise choice of leaning heavily on Church's acting ability- and the boggling choice of making this a movie entirely about the lead character without ever really bothering to provide us much information about him. Aside from knowing he's a drunk whose wife died, we're left to follow Bruce entirely in the moment, not really able to understand the majority of odd actions he takes. Acting is a 5 out of 5, but the movie as a whole is almost empty.
