The Guest / L’invité

A Québec short film now available on Vimeo on Demand

It’s the dead of winter as we peer out of the windows of a cabin in the woods on the edge of a lake, snow falling gently on evergreen branches and frozen waters. An ageing ice fisherman sets out for his usual routine – only this time his catch of the day turns out to be something rather unexpected: a house guest. This somber meditation on loneliness and isolation is beautifully shot, well acted and expertly paced. (Original Title: L’INVITÉ)
