Bonifacio 1883, at the southern tip of Corsica. The Saverini widow (Christiane Conil in a very intense performance) is an old pious midwife who lives in an isolated house near the cliffs with her only son Antoine, a fisherman, and her dog. One night Antoine is killed by an intruder, a Sardinian bandit. Her world falls to pieces. This dark fairy tale of revenge packs a lot of emotion and intensity without a single line of dialogue.

Not Rated (some violence, blood).
