L’eau Chaude, L’eau Frette

Fortnight 1976, Feature film, 1h34

Synopsis

« Forcier only shows characters that cannot be considered only as theatrical patterns. He does not pu them on a great stage where they are saying their contempt for society, shouting their desire to escape. He lifts the lid of a garbage can to let us see inside, and replaces it while we are staring at thehelf-broken things inside that could still have some use. »
Extract from an article of Claude Daigneault about « Bar Salon » in « Le Soleil », March 1st, 1975

Director

André Forcier

Born in Montreal in 1947, he directs his first 8mm short film while still in high school. Gilles Carle noticed «La mort vue par …» and it was broadcasted on Radio Canada. Forcier shots his second short film in 1967, «Chroniques labradoriennes». His first feature film, «Le retour de l’immaculée conception» in 1971, expresses the worries of the young of Quebec. His first critical success was «Bar salon» (1972), where he works for the first time with his favourite thespian, Guy l’Ecuyer, and screenwriter Jacques Marcotte. «L’Eau chaude, l’Eau frette» was one of his biggest success.
