The autobiography of novelist Gabrielle Roy has touched thousands of readers. From her childhood in Manitoba to her passion for the theatre, which sent her to Europe before settling in Montreal at the cusp of the Second World War, life throbs within these pages with irrepressible authenticity. Between blinding light and abject blackness, between the fullness of joy and the pain of emptiness, between paralyzing uncertainties and the kind of revelations that transform an entire destiny.
To fully appreciate these words of exceptional humanity, Marie-Thérèse Fortin and writer-director Olivier Kemeid have created a theatrical montage of the memoirs of the Franco-Canadian author. In a formidable and devastating performance, a great actress succeeds in bringing an exceptional writer back to life, making those who do not yet know her love her, and awaking the memories in those who’ve long admired her.
