[A] meticulous and poetic study of industrial labor.
It's a little diffuse, but it suggests that Mr. Côté is trying out a sketch, with more experiments to come.
Definitely not for the narrative-minded, "Joy of Man's Desiring" will please if not swell the ranks of Cote admirers.
Joy of Man's Desiring forgoes obvious didactics and visual cues in favor of letting viewers draw their own conclusions.
Joy of Man's Desiring touches on questions of alienation and despair in the workplace, but offers no clear insights and reaches no firm conclusions.
Joy of Man's Desiring" confirms my impression that Denis Côté is the most talented Canadian director to emerge since Guy Maddin.
Prolific Quebecqois film-maker Denis Côté explores the world of work in Joy Of Man's Desiring (Que ta joie demeure), a poetic and hybrid study of industrial life, factories and the meaning of labour.
You might enjoy the movie or you might think it's super boring. I liked it, ultimately.
A chronicle the act of labor as both a universal function of life and a spectacle in itself.
It's interesting to get a glimpse of a world many of us know little about but Côté is not the kind of filmmaker who's into explaining what he's filming or giving it any context.
