Stéphane Lafleur | 2007 | Drama | 103 minutes
A Man wakes up on a bus. Everyone has left. Night has fallen. He gets off the bus, and finds himself alone. The bus has stopped at the edge of a forest. On either side, the road is veiled by darkness. From the forest, he hears sounds — night-time forest sounds. After much hesitation, the Man enters the forest, disappearing into the darkness.
Continental (Continental, un film sans fusil) features four characters whose lives will be affected by that Man’s disappearance. Although told separately, these stories end up intersecting and mirroring each other.
A bittersweet black comedy, Continental takes a playful look at individual
vulnerability and the fragile link that connects us to our fellow human beings.
In French with English subtitles
Presented in association with the Canadian Film Institute and the generous financial support of the Klondike Visitors Association.
