Ecumenical prize in Berlin to Familiar Grounds, en terrains connus




(En terrains connus)

a film by Stéphane Lafleur (Canada)

"This film is structurally original in showing how "accidents" can alter human relationships.

 It is innovative in drawing warm and human comic moments out of an alienated world where relationships are fragile.

Its dialogue is sparse and well-controlled, and the soundtrack integrates very effectively with the film's visual imagery."
