Storyline

One Halloween, the alcoholic mother of good-for-nothing Raymond suddenly dies, and he throws her body in a ditch. Repenting, he calls his sister Angelie, an actress who he has not seen for ten years, to help find the corpse. But the corpse they bring back in the ruined family home is not that of their mother. The brother and the sister start a sinister adventure involving two gangsters in dire straits, two chilling dealers, a dishonest artist agent, a terribly stupid cop, and a horde of pigs.

Too much like a stage play
24 August 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

One look at "Cadavres" different sceneries or acting quickly reveals that the crew and the actors really invested a lot of energy in this project... and it shows way too much.

Sadly, the result looks more like an exaggerated stage play than a movie. François Barcelo's script itself is awful, full of unbelievably cartoonish characters evolving in unnatural studio-made locations. The family's old house especially looks studio-made.

Although the lighting and special effects are beautiful to the eye, they just add to the whole artificial mess. The movie-in-the-movie scenes featuring the actress' TV character look like dumb caricatures of TV shows. There is now way they would have been screened outside of a children or comedy context.

Of course, people looking for coloured circus-like adult movies - there is some nudity and sex, but not that much - might like "Cadavres".

As for myself, the magic did not operate. I prefer a more realistic, less-staged approach to movie-making.

All in all, Québec has produced a lot of better movies.
