One of Quebec cinema’s most distinctive talents and a Festival favourite thanks to past features like Tu Dors Nicole (KCFF15), Stéphane Lafleur returns with what may be his most ambitious, imaginative and remarkable film to date. A piece of speculative fiction based on events related to the first manned mission to Mars, VIKING could be described as a science-fiction comedy, albeit one in which the space travelers never leave the Earth. Whatever the case, Steve Laplante gives an impeccable performance as an ordinary teacher thrust into extraordinary circumstances with continually surprising results, as well as many moments that demonstrate Lafleur’s flair for deadpan humour and his keen awareness of life’s many ironies.
