Original and a bit provocative
25 June 2011 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

Despite an occasional technical weakness (notably in continuity), LES SIGNES VITAUX is a rewarding watching experience thanks to the originality of the thematic, the convincing acting and overall off-beat treatment.

Yes, this little fiction with many documentary aspects proves to be refreshing and surprising in many ways.

On the other hand the very final scene was a bit disappointing, as if the authors didn't really know how to conclude. Also, what comes close to spoil the whole thing is the poor and irrelevant musical comment. Too bad the production could not afford to hire a better composer.
