Structured as a love letter, this feature film is an impressionistic history of the women of Québec down through the ages: the Indigenous woman, the fille du Roy, the nun, the settler's wife, the soldier's wife, and, finally, today's woman.

    J'ai fait 2 requêtes pour signaler que le decomment n'est pas en ligne. Le tire-au-flanc qui s'occupe de mettre les documents en ligne devrait aller bosser à l'INA.- This document is not connected, right?
