WORLD PREMIERE

A runaway actress desperate to learn English, a screenwriter working on the story of a bomb- defusing poet, a priest with a penchant for smell-based sermons and . . . Denzel Washington? Backed by a dozen others, these characters weave together the multiple stands of a wide-ranging chaotic work that defies easy definition. A regular at the FNC (Les Arts de la parole, En attendant Avril), Godin serves up what might be his most ambitious film to date: a feast of sparkling dialogue and comic absurdity that even manages to rope in the philosophy of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
