La chanson de l'éléphant

Charles Binamé Canada, 2014

msmichel's rating of the film Elephant Song

A well made cat and mouse tale that finds a hospital administrator/psychiatrist interviewing an inmate about a missing doctor finding himself manipulated in the process. Bruce Greenwood and Catherine Keener are excellent here but young Xavier Dolan is not reigned in enough and mugs a little much. Worse the side story involving a Downs afflicted niece and a clinging new love for the psychiatrist. Strong tech work.
