Film Details


Canada | 2010 | Denis Côté


A foreign-language art-film variation on Psycho, this stunningly shot French-Canadian drama from the director of Bestiaire is set in a wintry small town in rural Quebec. A single father who works at the local bowling alley and motel homeschools his 12-year-old daughter. He also keeps her sequestered from the other residents of the village (for reasons that remain mysterious), but can’t keep her shielded from some strange sightings: a caged tiger, a bloody motel room, frozen corpses in the surrounding woods. This disquieting, deadpan drama with flashes of absurdist humor is a father-daughter story you’ll long remember. (The two stars are real-life father and child.) “The year’s best (Canadian) film.” –Int’l Film Guide 2011.
