Panorama / Careers


A businessman starts an extramarital relationship with the young woman who takes care of her wife, a Canada minister who is bedridden due to depression. 

A dream and a (social class) nightmare, a free representation of a conscience exam (for the character or the filmmaker), a materialist allegory with echoes of Greek mythology, and maybe also an emotional torture for powerful people in the world. Unclassifiable, this is an undeniable film by Denis Côté.A powerful Russian businessman has to deal with the melancholic depression suffered by his wife, a government cabinet member. Beatrice’s catatonia and amnesia are mysteriously linked to Boris’ arrogance and vanity, as he carries affairs with different employees while his family ties are postponed by the logic of business. On those symbolic coordinates, Côté works on the relationships between the characters without neglecting his plethoric setting, filled with tiny formal decisions that are both elegant and circumspect.
