My Old Addiction

Movie Reviews By Bil Antoniou

The Five Of Us (Elles Etaient Cinq)

BBB.5

(out of 5)


32 year-old Montreal stockbroker Manon is getting ready for a date with the office Romeo when she has a teenage memory flashback to the devastating summer that changed her life. In order to get past the trauma, she reconnects with her three best friends, with whom she spent summers at the cottage from when they were little girls, in an attempt to rehash the past and move forward with her life. This lovely film by Ghyslaine Cote hits all the right points in an efficient manner, striking up chords of nostalgia, humour and pure tragedy before a satisfying conclusion. The actresses who play the young women as both teenagers and adults do a superb job with both, with  particularly standing out in the lead.
