Event type: All Ages / Licensed
A prizewinner at Montreal’s Festival de Nouveau Cinema and a favourite at the Slamdance and Berlin festivals, the first feature by Pascal Plante is a standout even in a year filled with exceptional debuts. The deceptively casual naturalism of the director’s earlier shorts is a perfect fit for this low-key story of the summer romance between Theo (Anthony Therrien) and Mag (Rose-Marie Perreault), two Montreal teens who meet after attending a punk-rock show. Haunted by a painful event he can’t talk about, Theo is initially wary of the forthright Mag but the couple’s chemistry couldn’t be clearer to themselves or to viewers. Thanks to his leads’ astute performances and Plante’s skillful direction, FAKE TATTOOS boasts a savvy and sensitivity that are all too rare in screen stories of young love.
