The Kingston Canadian Film Festival presents MENTEUR (COMPULSIVE LIAR)
Director: Émile Gaudreault
Featuring: Louis-José Houde, Antoine Bertrand, Véronique Le Flaguais
Language: French subtitled in English
Runtime: 111 minutes
Canada’s top-grossing homegrown hit of 2019, MENTEUR continues the hot streak of crowdpleasers by writer-director Émile Gaudreault and actor and comedian Louis-José Houde, the team whose earlier box-office champ FATHER AND GUNS closed the KCFF in 2010. (Co-writer Eric K. Bouilliane was also here in 2017 with PRANK.) Houde stars as Simon, a compulsive liar whose truth-stretching ways have unintended effects when his lies mysteriously gain the power to re-shape reality. Along with his hapless brother Phil – played by the hilarious Antoine Bertrand – Simon must act fast to undo the damage amid a series of increasingly global calamities. Thankfully, that’s all good news for audiences who’ll appreciate MENTEUR’s madcap humour and big heart.
To mark our 20th anniversary, we’re launching the Live the Experience Fund that will provide tickets for local schools and community groups to attend the Festival and live the experience first hand.
