Fate brings together four people dealing with various life crises and emotional struggles in this downbeat drama from Quebecois filmmaker Catherine Martin. Fanny (Helene Florent) is a woman with a passion for trees who is employed by the Montreal parks department and is engaged in an ongoing struggle to save the city's public greenery, an effort which does not seem likely to succeed. Fanny's efforts bring her into contact with a handful of other desperate characters, including Jospehine (Helene Loiselle), who is single and has given up on ever finding the love she needs; Jean-Luc (Robert Lepage), who has lost both his sight and someone close to him as he tries to express himself through photographs he cannot see; and Carole (Eve Duranceau), whose psyche is beginning to crumble under the pressure of her daily life. Dans les Villes received its world premier at the 2006 Toronto Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
