Spotlight on our cinema
QUéBEC, Canada | 132 minutes | 2019
Montreal is snowed under. While the downtown cranes dance their hypnotic ballet, two strangers meet randomly in an unfinished apartment. Their chance encounter leads to a violent attraction and a dependency beyond reason. One man is a Russian-born professional acrobat whose future is jeopardized by a broken leg. The other is a buttoned-down, well groomed man of few words. Which one dominates? Which one manipulates? As it turns out, love is painful and human relations are complex. For his dreamy, meditative sixth feature, Rodrigue Jean trains his singular lens on a story both mysterious and sexually explicit.Q&A with the two main actors on October 15thThe film is intended for an adult audience (18 +)In collaboration with les Rendez-vous Québec Cinéma
