Le Problème d’infiltration

True North | True North

When Dr. Louis Richard (Christian Bégin) gives a dinner party at his upscale suburban home, everything is just so. There are precise wine pairings for each elaborately plated dish, and the conversation of his professional friends bubbles with knowing repartee. His attractive, devoted wife and studious son complete this ideal picture of bourgeois domesticity. But we’re getting ahead of ourselves. The film opens in a starkly lit hospital where a burn victim is consulting with the doctor while his grievous injury is slowly revealed. Then, something unanticipated happens and nothing is as it seemed.

This dark psychological thriller brings us deep into the world of a narcissistic plastic surgeon as that carefully constructed cosmos comes crashing down around him. Director Robert Morin delivers a voyeuristic and claustrophobic experience as his camera parallels the control-freak doctor’s deteriorating state of mind. As Richard’s precious sense of authority slips away, he no longer comprehends his increasingly independent wife, his now rap-loving son or his threatened career. This is a beautifully shot and lit travelogue of one man’s journey into isolation and madness.
