Though the latest film by Montreal’s Simon Lavoie may be less overtly confrontational than THOSE WHO MAKE REVOLUTION HALFWAY DIG THEIR OWN GRAVES – which Lavoie presented at last year’s KCFF with co-director Mathieu Denis – it’s no less audacious. That’s partially due to its source material: an award-winning novel by the late Gaétan Soucy that became a literary sensation in Quebec thanks to its grim and surreal tale of two siblings whose minds were so warped by their religious-maniac father, the younger of the two doesn’t even understand she’s actually a girl. Integrating Soucy’s ideas and story with his own provocations, Lavoie presents a stunning vision of mid-century Quebec that’s closer to the horrors of Hieronymous Bosch than the bittersweet nostalgia of MON ONCLE ANTOINE

“Johnson – in her first leading role – is riveting as the maladjusted hero.”  -Norman Wilner, NOW Magazine
