Les bons débarras

Québec (Canada)

A strange family lives in an isolated house: a mother with a few love affairs, her mentally ill brother and her possessive daughter Manon. Manon will do anything to earn her mother’s unconditional love.


Réjean Ducharme’s rich, contrasting world combines with Mankiewicz’s light-dark, skin-deep sensibility to create one of the most beautiful Quebec films ever made. Remarkable performances by the actors, who bathe in a soft, bluish atmosphere, a very Nordic film.
