pour mieux t'aimer (to love you better)
Feature film, Drama
Pour mieux t’aimer (to love you better) tells the story of a family whose mother disappeared 30 years ago, without leaving a trace. Her husband and two sons have reconstructed a life as they could, haunted by this ghost and tortured by questioning. When an unknown young Romanian arrives to bring them what seems to be the pieces that are missing from their story, they now have to face their demons.
This film was produced as part of Telefilm Canada's "Micro Budget" program, a co-direction between Gilles Doiron & Denise Bouchard. Currently in post-production, this film will be launched in the next year.

Léa is an 18-year old girl who lives with her parents in Pointe-Verte, a small village in northern New Brunswick. Saddened by her grand-mother's unexpected death, she forages in her attic and discovers an old photo album and a Polaroid camera that used to belong to the 56 year-old.
The album is filled with pictures taken on a trip around New Brunswick that her grand-mother would have taken while she was Léa's age. In an effort to pay her last respects, she decides to grab a backpack and leave her hometown to recreate the photo album.
Standing on the snow-covered beach at Val-Comeau, she meets Maxime, a boy her age who is also traveling on foot, and they decide to travel together.
