Spotlight on homegrown cinema
| 78 minutes | 2018
A mysterious, absurdist romcom, Olivier Godin’s latest brings together a singing bone, an actor with a gorilla arm, a spectacularly vulgar female cop and a cluster of other characters in search of love. After Les Arts de la parole (FNC 2016), he takes storyteller Michel Faubert’s collection of medieval fables as a pretext for joyously trashing cinematic conventions. Off-the-wall humour, honed aesthetics, whimsical dialogue: it’s like seeing Jarry, Beckett or Ionesco on the big screen, with a touch of Bergman thrown in for good measure!Q&A with the cast and crew on October 7th
