Synopsis

A young advertising executive travels to a rural funeral and finds that no one knows his name or the nature of his relationship with the deceased. When his older brother forces him into an unhealthy role-playing game to protect his mother and their family honor, a toxic relationship soon begins that will only end when the truth finally comes out, no matter the consequences.

Michel Marc Bouchard

Born in 1958, Michel Marc Bouchard grew up in Lac Saint-Jean. It was there that he staged his very first play, Scandal, in 1975. He then went on to study theater at the University of Ottawa and worked with several French Ontario theatre companies. In 1983, his play La contre-nature de Chrysippe Tanguay, écologiste, was shown at the Théâtre d'aujourd'hui in Montreal, which was a turning point in his career. The many plays he has written since then have often been translated and performed internationally. In Quebec, Michel Marc Bouchard has collaborated with the greatest directors, such as André Brassard and Brigitte Haentjens. He himself has written the screenplay for several film adaptations of his works, including John Greyson's Les Feluettes, Sophie Lorain's Les grandes chaleurs and Xavier Dolan's* Tom à la ferme*.

Tom à la ferme by **Xavier Dolan

The most impressive aspect of the film is the way it meanders seamlessly between different genres and moods, going from a scary scene out of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre to a comedy situation (a wild tango between Tom and his brother-in-law), from whodunit to boulevard, from horror to queer melodrama, and so on.
