Maverick Canadian director Denis Côté, known for his bold experiments in cinema, has made a more character-and-dialogue driven film, but one that’s just as boundary-pushing. Victoria, an ex-convict in her sixties, and her lover and former cellmate Florence want to start a new life in a remote sugar shack. Under the supervision of Guillaume, a young, sympathetic parole officer, they try to get their lives back on track. A bizarre, funny, and creepy melodrama, the film creates an ominous atmosphere as Vic and Flo’s idyll is interrupted by ghosts from their past. With fine performances, bizarre characters, striking visuals, a tender love story at its centre and a shocking climax, VIC + FLO ONT VU UN OURS leaves you shaken and certain that you’ve seen something visionary and unique.
