Un crabe dans la tête (Soft Shell Man) Photos

Movie Info

Quebec cinematographer turned filmmaker Andre Turpin directs this character study about one man's ability to charm and inability to face the truth. The film revolves around Alex (David La Haye), an acclaimed underwater photographer who is in demand around the world. When a diving accident results in a brain injury, he is forced to dry his flippers in Montreal. Though a relative stranger to the town, he quickly charms himself into the lives of an egocentric businessman, a neurotic drug pusher, and his friend's deaf girlfriend. Yet, slowly his personality is shifting as a result of the accident. Will he let himself take a long sober view of his changing life? This film was screened at the 2001 Toronto Film Festival.

Sweet and sly.

...it's somewhat refreshing to watch a Canadian movie that's about normal people pursuing romantic relationships.

Drug abuse, infidelity and death aren't usually comedy fare, but Turpin's film allows us to chuckle through the angst.

One of those energetic surprises, an original that pleases almost everyone who sees it.
