Still Life: A Three Pines Mystery 2013

Still Life: A Three Pines Mystery

     This film is based on a novel by Louise Penny and it is filmed in Canada.  Chief Inspector Armand Gamache and his investigation team arrive in Quebec to work on a new case in Three Pines.  A popular and much-loved schoolteacher in the village has been killed in an unusual manner.  At first, the team finds the wound strange and they are unsure about the weapon.  It’s a shocking event for all the people who knew her and the area is usually a peaceful community without incidents such as this one.
     The scenes of the woods and the trees with their autumn foliage are very beautiful.  There are a lot of characters and that causes confusion.  I had trouble keeping them in their places.  There is one woman who died before the inspector arrived and she isn’t shown but is mentioned a lot.  3* (This movie is OK)

88 min, TV Movie directed by Peter Moss with Nathaniel Parker, Anthony Lemke, Kate Hewlett, Gabriel Hogan, Mike McPhaden, Susanna Fournier.

Note:  Imdb 5.6 out of 10, Amazon 3* out of 5* with 46 reviews.
