Journey (1972)


Found drifting down the Saguenay River, half-drowned and clinging to a log, a woman is rescued by Boulder, who carries her to Undersky, his commune in the Quebec wilderness. Named after the river from which she was saved, Saguenay is haunted by memories of her past and remains unresponsive for days, drifting in and out of consciousness. She gradually becomes aware of the life going on around her and begins to explore it. But she senses she has brought ill fortune to this community and fears something in her past has doomed her and all who know her.

Big shout out to Anthony Kurtzweil for putting this film on Youtube! The other 2 Almond films of this trilogy: Isabel and Act of the Heart are relatively easy to find online but this one seemed to have vanished completely despite having being released on VHS in 1978. Thanks to this very kind person now it can finally be watched and preserved. Thank you, Anthony!
