All That She Wants (Elle veut le chaos)
Eve Duranceau, Normand Lévesque, Laurent Lucas,nicolas Canuel, Réjean Lefrançois, Olivier Aubin, Lesya Samar / Fiction / French
Québécois rustic life as a dead end of petty crime, and a hymn to Bela Tarr and Diane Arbus.
Coralie escapes her rural boredom by making anonymous dirty phonecalls. Frenchie wants to escape too, but is drawn moth-like to her impassive charms. All they want is a change of scenery, but the resident pimp has other ideas. From ellipses to seductive tracking shots, Côté’s masterpiece is a black and white cul-de-sac of picaresque boredom, made all the more stunning by its Cinemascope compositions.
