Prière pour une mitaine perdue

Cinéastes cœur à cœur

Quebec (Canada)

Night has fallen and Montreal is under a blanket of snow. At the City Transit Company, people line up at the lost and found office, where upon reflection, losing something becomes a symbol of a deeper loss. This creative documentary is sometimes melancholic, sometimes festive yet always compassionate. In fact, it makes you appreciate winter.


Heart to heart: Jean-François Lesage and Sylvain L’Espérance
