The brutal first feature debut by radical filmmaker Mathieu Denis, Laurentie is the poetic name given to Quebec, and was the name for the idea of an independent Quebec in 1930s to ‘50s. The story of Louis, the 28 year old protagonist, spirals – slowly – towards a brutal climax, all shot in a formal and structured manner, to reinforce the film’s message about the emptiness of Quebecois society.
