CANADA , France | 105 minutes | 2017

Fresh look at a homeless, downtrodden couple making their hard-luck way down the snow-covered highways of Canada. The story of a couple of small-time drifters accompanied by an eight-year-old boy, this debut feature by the French-born Canadian director stood out at the last Directors’ Fortnight for its confident staging and the genuine feeling conveyed by its misfit characters. A devastating account of a toxic relationship that manages to avoid pessimism.
