Vic+Flo Saw a Bear / Vic+Flo ont vu un ours

International Feature Film Competition

A vacant bus stop, two boys playing the trombone, and a cynical dyke who just got released from prison. Victoria Champagne arrives in the deep woods near Québec to start a new life with her partner Florence who likes to cruise across the hypnotic landscape in a golf cart. All seems so idyllic: a wood shed occupied only by stroke victim Mr Yves, rustling trees, birdsongs and the eternal peace of country seclusion. Add in the muscular neighbor who is always willing to lend her axe and who knows all about gardening as well as the dangers of the woods, where bloodthirsty bears are said to be roaming. Even the diligent Guillame, set to supervise Vic’s rehabilitation into society, is a piece of cake to charm and manipulate. Thus, Vic and Flo believe they have a new chance. But the forest can be cruel to those who are not careful and to those who provoke beasts of all kinds - and those who are unforgiving. Vic and Flo saw and won the (Silver) Bear at the Berlinale.
