  • msmichel's rating of the film Diego Star

    When a ship is stuck for repairs in a Quebecois harbour a man of Ivory Coast heritage is billeted with a young single mother who doesn't realize he is being ostracized by his fellow crew and employers. Film captures both the chill of a frigid winter port and the chill of trying to survive obstacles in day to day life whether home or so far away from it; while touching on bureaucracy, foreign workers and futility.
