Audience Reviews for L'Âge des ténèbres (The Age of Ignorance) (Days of Darkness)

½

Arcand's latest plays out like ''Modern Society Anxieties : Greatest Hits'' rather than the conclusion to a trilogy of nuanced, self-reflexive portraits on the bourgeois lifestyle. The existential exhaustment coursing through the film does, however, come to light in the form of a delicately affecting conclusion, and Marc Labreche is quite troubling at times. Yet, I was never quite sold on the questionable means that L'Age des Tenebres uses to get its narrative strolling along, and was ultimately let down by its lack of cohesion. Another remark : why do our protagonist's dreamlike evasions have to solely be through sex?
