What are people saying?

  • msmichel's rating of the film In the Cities

    Catherine Martin's Montreal set feature looks at the alienation of city dwellers and the inability to make human connections regardless of just how needed they are. The film focuses on the stoic Fanny and three people she winds up intersecting with. Solid scripting with strong turns by Helene Florent and Helen Loiselle.
