Canada's Top Ten Film Festival 🍁
LES AFFAMÉS (14A)

One of the most unique voices in Québécois cinema, Robin Aubert has flirted with genre before. With his latest, a riveting zombie film, he plunges in head- (and brains-) first!

Informed as much by Aubert's own obsessions as it is by established conventions, LES AFFAMÉS is punctuated by gallows humour and moments of twitchy surrealism, much of it propelled by the zombies’ compulsive behaviour. As in Aubert's earlier anti-pastorals, the Quebec countryside is a playground for a cultural and historical id where a society's most sinister impulses and repressed traumas enjoy free rein.

And, as with the best zombie movies, LES AFFAMÉS is partly about politics and partly about a fear of the masses overpowering both individuals and minority groups — something that can happen even in the most idyllic locations. Best Canadian Feature, TIFF. — Steve Gravestock, TIFF
