COTTAGE COUNTRY (Canada, 2013) - premiered at the Fantasia International Film Festival

Although Canadian film offer usually lags behind others,  Cottage Country, which had its North American premiere at the largest genre film festival in North America  - extraordinary Fantasia Film Festival (Montreal, July 18 – August 7, 2013), is really worth of mentioning. The real gem of this year’s very strong Fantasia program was Peter Wellington’s Cottage Country, a highly inspiring satire written by successful Canadian writer Jeremy Boxen that blends well-balanced elements of horror and comedy, ending up in a family drama. Cleverly scripted, smoothly directed and well-acted, this highly sophisticated piece shows the hypocrisy of modern society through a premise that a common cause of revealing the truth (i.e. our true identity), very often is driven by a (personal) tragedy, even of the most extreme proportions. Here, an old expression: "in trouble you know a hero" is translated into: what if we live our lives decently, work hard, reach an age that is widely considered as “the last minute” for establishing the family, therefore we decide to propose our beloved in a romantic surroundings (like our parents’ cottage country), not counting on unexpected appearance of our unconventional brother (a hippie artist, and as such bad influence), with his even more unconventional girlfriend,… especially not that we might also unexpectedly kill them both... But, thanks to those extreme measures, certainly the least we could expect is recognizing our true feelings towards our future fiancee  (affected by the biological clock), or the real nature of our parents’ relationship. I would highly recommend this flick to everyone who enjoy in real cinema - well told stories that offer both (unfortunately, very rare nowadays) – entertainment with much deeper meaning.yes
