The Patron Saints

Canada, United States, 2011
Documentary

Synopsis

Laced with black humor, The Patron Saints is an unorthodox documentary about a home for the aged and disabled. By turns lyrical and unsettling, the directors eschew more traditional approaches to the subject, opting for a more mesmerizing atmospheric formal treatment.

What are people saying?

  • @danracine's rating of the film The Patron Saints

    Bien loin de l'ambiance qui régnait dans le superbe LA BELLE VISITE de Jean-François Caissy, Brian M. Cassidy & Melani Shatzky nous plonge dans la détresse psychologique et les petits démons qui habitent les esprits de ces vieilles personnes abandonnés dans leurs souvenirs. Un portrait cru et sans artifice d'une réalité que l'on voudrait souvent évitée. Perturbant!
