Film description

Lost Song is an unsettling and intense film dealing with the emotional struggle of a classically trained singer spending the summer in a cottage cabin with her distant husband and newborn baby. Businessman Pierre and his singer wife, Elizabeth drive to the country to stay with his mother after the arrival of their first child. It was a difficult birth, as Elizabeth is still recovering physically and also seems to be experiencing some form of post-partum depression. The familial tension in the country home is palpable. The baby is constantly restless, refusing to eat and has difficulty sleeping. The situation is exacerbated by an increasingly distant Pierre's return to work, which leaves the fragile Elizabeth alone to care for their child. She begins leaving the baby with her overly attentive mother-in-law Louise, spending time with teenaged neighbour Naomi, and finding comfort in the girl's youth. Jean's formal precision combines tense psychological drama with a compassionate portrait of love slowly fading.
