In a piece about the First World, whose motor suddenly stopped, workers stay home and no longer sell their products. In a small town in the depths of Québec, covered day and night by a thick layer of snow, Sébastien Pilote makes us experience the most serious crisis of capitalism through the eyes and heart of a single extraordinary character, an elderly car salesman - a symbol of the industrial revolution, the oldest and best of them all. In the emotional derangement that overwhelms the salesman, we recognize all the labors and adjustments in the sense of the value of labor that were imposed by the crisis: what fills the affective void, what you lose and never thought you would, what kills you, what saves you...

An important film set in the heart of Québec, against the background of the current financial crisis. The main protagonist is the frozen snow that seems always to be blocking people, feelings, and things. The film represents with limpidity of imagination and rigor of narrative the delusion of a man who believes he can save himself on his own, protected by the System and at the mercy of its unavoidable rules.

Prize of the City of Torino
