And the Birds Rained Down

"Is it possible to exist only for ourselves? And the Birds Rained Down, a film written and directed by Louise Archambault and based on the acclaimed novel by Jocelyne Saucier, forces us to answer that question. Quietly, beautifully and sometimes uncomfortably – much like the story itself. When two women arrive at a remote hotel amidst a sprawling Quebec forest threatened by forest fire, both change the lives of the men they meet. One, a photographer (Eve Landry), arrives to piece together the life of a man whose mythos rivals the wildfire he survived decades before (and bands together with the hotel owner in the process). The other, an elderly woman named Geraldine (played by the veteran Andree Lachapelle, who is absolutely triumphant in her role), finds solace among two hermits after escaping the psychiatric institution she’d been forcibly confined to since her teens. From there, we watch as each person redefines their idea of love and of vulnerability, while simultaneously grappling with the choices that brought them to the same place. Touching, heartbreaking and dangerously thought-provoking, And the Birds Rained Down will force you to re-examine your relationship with yourself, the world around you and the people you love. All while daring you to assess the walls you’ve built, lest they’ve trapped you in a life you fell into." – Anne T. Donahue
