Les Dernières Fiançailles

Fortnight 1974, Feature film, 1h34


There is no simpler story than this film’s. Rose and Armand Tremblay celebrate in death their last anniversary, just before their 50th year together. The film shows what you see, in the almost silence of loneliness.
Shot by an average 30 year old crew, it could be a bridge between generations. It is an account that avoid preconceptions, if not prejudices.

Jean-Pierre Lefèbvre

Differently of his contemporary quebecois’ directors, Lefebvre didn’t make his class in the documentary. After his Literary studies and seven years of critics, he immediatly began directing fiction movies; a short in 1964 _ »L’Homoman »_ preceeding an ininterrompt serie of movies of which he produce at least the first five. In fact, he has found his own production company Cinak Ltee and his own distributing company Disci Inc. His style is based on low cost movies, on natural location and using few characters. He approach the cinema in the same ‘maniere’ then Luc Besson; a non-narrative non-psychological cinema, mostly without action where the characters present themselves by the way they live.
