Movie Info

An engineer (Emmanuel Schwartz) abandoned by his lover, a filmmaker (Jennifer Alleyn) losing her character, an actress friend in self-reflection (Pascale Bussières), a musician-philosopher who put away his guitar (J. Reissner), they all hit a wall. IMPETUS follows, from Montreal to New York, four individuals colliding, each giving the other a new impulse, a liberating impetus.


Critic Reviews for Impetus

All Critics (4)

  • Impetus is, above most things, an extremely interesting film, but perhaps mostly for those who know that they lean more favorably towards the experimental with the slightest waftings of pretentiousness.

  • Impetus functions like a deconstruction of this sub-subgenre, which seems somewhat cruel, considering that it's yet to be properly constructed. But that's life for the loser genre. Kick it while it's down.

  • Impetus is nearly impossible to categorize - not because it defies genre, rather it tries to occupy too many of them at once.

  • Impetus is an inventive exploration of the metaphysical. However it struggles to keep the viewer's attention. While the story got away from me the philosophical ideas stuck.
