Storyline

Through an immigrant cab driver, our world collides with a nervous filmmaker, a lawyer whose new breasts her ex-boyfriend wants to see, a mystery man, a gay man who might or might not have AIDS, and a birthday girl who got stood up. It is a mixture of laughter and sadness, all floating on a sea of philosophy. Written by Steve Richer <sricher@sympatico.ca>

A study of unity through disjunction
16 August 1999 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

"Cosmos" is one of the rare anthology films where its composite nature strengthens, rather than detracts from, its cohesion and identity as an artistic work. Six stories are presented, all happening in Montreal but otherwise seemingly unrelated. In each story is an appearance by the cab driver Cosmos, and there are occasional glimpses of other stories' characters, providing a framework to bind them together. But each story also deals with themes of separation or disjointedness; either from society, loved ones, or within the characters themselves. There are also chance meetings and coincidences that occur throughout, bringing unlikely combinations of people together. The characters, like the six stories, are distinct and separate but also tenuously and unmistakably linked.

"Cosmos" is a film of great humour, pathos, poignancy, wit, even zany slapstick. I have seen precious few films like this one and recommend it heartily.
