During an opulent banquet, eleven pampered guests participate in what appears to be a ritualistic gastronomic carnage. In this grotesque universe, an unexpected sequence of events destabilizes the endless symphony of abundance.
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 may or may not be HIV-positive, 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

Six short stories unwrap in a black and white Montreal
COSMOS is the prototype of an art-house film. Cerebral, full of nuances, this Canadian film (in Quebecois with English subtitles) shows us bits of Montreal's "cosmos". Developed through sixsomewhat related vignettes, four of them involve a Greek taxi driver (apparently inspiring the film's title). The beautiful black and white cinematography sets just the right tone for these slice of life depictions. I definitely recommended it for "art-house cinema" aficionados.
