Col.

Milla is in love with Leo and these desolation angels find refuge in an abandoned house. Their precarious little world is challenged by Leo’s job on a trawler.Thus begins a second movement in which Milla's character grows up, transforming to the point of illuminating the film. A portrait of a fighter, a resistance shared by the other women she meets along the way. A galaxy of feminine characters who represent a suffering but supportive group, and the kind of beauty that appears where you’d least expect it: in the light falling on a wall, in the sound of a baby suckling at a breast, and in the kind of complicity that has no need for words. (Laurence Reymond)
