Fiction bleeds into reality. Women declare themselves pregnant with the letter E! Denzel Washington plays himself in a popular sitcom. Chaos reigns and cops crave poetry. Mélusine Catafor abandons her identity in the city of Three-Rivers to seek a new one in Montreal where she hopes to learn English and where her best friend, Marie-Cobra Tremblay strives to birth an Odyssey. Rosaire, a melancholic pastor, organizes a major conference on Impossible Loves. Also, you'll meet La Renarde who hides a hole-punch in her coat. You'll learn the hole-punch is a formidable weapon used to pierce the ears of alley cats. As you can imagine, it's a comedy.

Olivier Godin

Olivier Godin studied cinema at Collège Ahuntsic, then at Concordia University. After his studies, he directed several films independently, developing a fragile and artisanal cinema practice. His short films La boutique de forge (2012) and Feu de Bengale (2014) each won the Best Canadian Short Film Award at the Festival du Nouveau Cinéma. In 2013, she was awarded the CALQ prize for Full Love, elected best work of art and experimentation. In 2014, a first retrospective of his work was presented at the Cinémathèque québécoise, the same year that Nouvelles, Nouvelles, his second feature film, was released.
