The Little Girl Who Was Too Fond of Matches (La petite fille qui aimait trop les allumettes)

A beguiling black-and-white period film about two siblings raised in a sprawling but dilapidated house in rural Quebec by their brutal father, who has forbade them from contact with the outside world. When their father dies, the boy (an intense Antoine L’Écuyer) wants to stay at the house, while the girl (striking newcomer Marine Johnson) – who has been raised a boy – wants to explore. Outsiders become interested in the siblings … plus something strange and disturbing lurks in their locked shed.
