HYGIÈNE SOCIALE / 2021 / CANADA / 75 min
In his new film, the Canadian director creates a peculiar atmosphere of real and pseud-philosophical depths with a loosely covered secret-mockery of those, unable to distinguish between the two. A humor the perhaps only the man of COVID-19 era can understand. Côté proves again that he is not afraid to experiment. A timeless subject: a disillusioned man and five women, each trying to change him in their own way. The characters engage in high and small talks about Volkswagens and discounted mattresses, while standing like statues, strictly following the rule of social distancing.
The director was born on 1973 in Canada.
