Rose Brouillard, le film
Dorothée, a film director appointed by development firm Plumules Nord, makes a movie about Rose Brouillard, an old woman with a failing memory, so that she can reflect on her childhood spent on one of the river’s islands. From the top of the cliff, on the Isle of the Watcher, you can see Sainte-Marée de l’Incantation, villagers with their sleeves rolled up, fishermen on the docks, characters gardening in the foliage, tourists, and other islands as well, all the way to Montreal, all the way to Cuba on a clear day.
An archipelago of sequences, lines and stories, Rose Brouillard, le film follows remembrance to its place of origin in order to unravel the memories, even if it means inventing some of the pieces to connect all the others. Since, after all, who cares about the truth? What matters here are the stories we tell ourselves.
