To help him understand why his life is unravelling (separation, depression, suspension from his job), Daniel Delgado, an alcoholic teacher, embarks on an investigation of the case of an artist manager found guilty of murder. Seeking to understand the killer’s motives, Delgado uncovers the complex ties between murderer and victim. The film takes the form of a documentary, but spins dizzyingly before us like a Möbius strip. As revelations continue to emerge, the teacher (played by the director) finds himself caught up in the murder’s narrative and discovers deep links between the killer and himself. Relying on transfers of identity, doppelgangers and repetition, Uncontrollable is a dense and complex work about the complexities of mental illness. Independent Québec filmmaker Eugene Garcia is a regular at the Festival du nouveau cinéma. He was awarded Best Canadian film in 1997 for Burnt Eden and has presented his last three features at FNC. Uncontrollable continues the longstanding and productive collaboration between director/screenwriter Garcia and his favourite actor Romano Orzari, who delivers an outstanding and subtle performance in the role of the murderer.
