Briand's first film, 2 Seconds, was a success. With Chaos and Desire she has overreached herself, but she is an ambitious artist and is moving in an intriguing direction.
With a smile halfway between seduction and a smirk, and an intensity that speaks of dark secrets and longing, Bussières has the duality needed to play Alice, a seismologist from sleepy Baie-Comeau.
A little too slick and self-aware, [the movie] never sinks under the weight of its themes, but this artsy craft of a film does creak and list en route to a safe, soppy ending.
Little more than a fish-out-of-water tale told like my uncle's suspect raves of his annual fishing trip: colourful but not terribly enlightening.
Briand's excellent widescreen composition and Brussieres' cool, composed sunglassed figure are immediately inviting, and the townspeople, who include diner owner Genevieve Bujold, are quirky but not overly so.
A hot, visually entrancing film.
So visually energetic and smartly written that one never stops enjoying the sheer pleasure of looking at it.
The schmaltz factor mushrooms when Briand introduces a gaggle of singing nuns who warble 'Ave Maria.'
I can't get enough of Pascale Bussieres. It is such a shame that she is not more well known outside of Quebec. It is a strange series of events in Brian Mulroney's hometown. No the ex-PM didn't suck away the tides.
