Movie Info

In this tough French-Canadian drama, two outsiders -- one who works with the law, another who lives outside it -- come together with unfortunate consequences. Linda (Sylvie Moreau) is a devoted single mother who will do anything to support her five-year-old daughter, Charlotte (Sarah Lecompte-Bergeron). Unfortunately, a lot of what Linda does best isn't exactly legal, such as luring well-to-do men into the park and then mugging them. One night, Linda is trying to coax a visitor from America into the shadows when the situation starts to go wrong. Meanwhile, Ghislain (Gabriel Arcand) is a shy, lonely fellow who works at the morgue and likes to listen to the blues late at night. In time, we discover that Linda and Ghislain met at one time, leading to an ugly encounter for both of them. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    <DIV ALIGN=center><B>POST MORTEM (1999) directed by Louis Bélanger starring Sylvie Moreau, Gabriel Arcand, Hélène Loiselle</B></DIV><P><DIV ALIGN=justify><I>Post Mortem</I> is Louis Bélanger's first film, and what a film it is. Great directorial debut about redemption, faith - in some sort of way - life and trying to get out of your small existence.<P>The movie is seperated in three parts; <I>Linda</I>, <I>Ghislain</I> and <I>Odieuse Félicité</I> (Hateful Felicity). In the first part you follow, Linda, a single mom on welfare who goes out with rich men at night to steal their money. She is basically trying to make a decent living to fulfill hers and her daughter's dreams but unfortunately she dies. In the second part you have Ghislain who has just been arrested by the police for rape. He is a lonely man and he tells his story of how it all happens. In the third part you discover how the two characters are linked, what secret brings 'em together.<P><I>Post Mortem</I> isnt very complex, its quite simple actaully but the simplicity makes this film very effective, emotionally and psychologically. There are scenes of full frontal nudity for both characters and that doesnt come from free its to show their vulnerability and how fragile they are.<P>Sylvie Moreau - usually a funny girl - gives a pretty solid performance while Gabriel Arcand - always deep - plays his character all in tones. Louis Bélanger's direction may seem clumsy at times but still he is in control of his film and he has some good dialogues, deep ones and funny ones. A good study of complex and troubled characters with a great score fitting the film perfectly to give the right strange mood it needs.</DIV>
