Freshly released from prison, Vic and her lover and fellow ex-con Flo take up residence in a remote farmhouse to care for Vic’s aging, ailing uncle Émil. Viewed with suspicion both by the locals, who have their own plans for Émil’s lands, and Vic’s parole agent, Vic and Flo soon find there are far more menacing beasts lurking in the woods. Part allegory, part redemptive love story,Vic et Flo boasts all the virtues one expects in a film by Côté - a remarkable sense of place, transfixing performances, and a lingering, palpable sense of dread - along with an overpowering sense of regret for lost opportunities and horizons limited by the actions of the past.

Rating: 14A (14A)
