maelstrom

A prehistoric fish narrates this bizarre but remarkable chapter in a young urbanite’s tumultuous life. In the span of a day, Bibiane is fired from her high profile job, has an abortion, and then, in a blur of boozy despair, hits and kills a Norwegian fishmonger in her car. It’s a watery, bloody, fishy tale of coincidence and redemption. Sound morbid? Surprisingly, this intricately plotted Quebecois film is often laugh-out-loud funny, and boasts an uplifting (and unusual) mix of French folk songs and Norwegian opera. [canada, 2001]
