Journey’s End

La Belle Visite (Orig.) / 2009 / Canada / 80 min

In the far reaches of the Quebec countryside, between a road and a headland that plunges into the sea, an abandoned motel has been converted into a retirement home. In this former travellers’ retreat, time seems to have ground to a halt. La belle visite is an elegiac exploration of old age, set in a place at once physical and allegorical.
