Irlande cahier bleu

Québec (Canada)

Ducarmel is an anachronistic firefighter, everyday poet and soup expert in his spare time. He also plays in a competitive mixed basketball league. His only problem in life is finding someone to look after his daughter. And when he dozes off in front of the TV, he dreams that he’s an alcoholic, in a strange world marked by an oniric cabbage. A world in which basketball games take place on distant planets; a world in which a curious blue notebook reigns; a world in which the potential for love looms large. A world in which he is the best basketball player of all time.


Olivier Godin’s new opus is a sensitive film, with delightful dialogue and soft, snowy images. Between dream and waking, the director plunges us into an intriguing, luminous universe in which the soup is good and, above all, in which desires become reality.
