Vic + Flo Saw a Bear
Vic + Flo Saw a Bear is a darkly mysterious tale of two lesbian ex-cons, Victoria and Florence, trying to make a new life in the backwoods of Quebec. Seeking peace and quite, the couple slowly begin to feel under siege as Vic’s probation office keeps unexpectedly popping up and a strange woman in the neighborhood soon turns out to be a sinister force from Flo’s past.
With its collection of complex and eccentric characters, unexpected plot twists and unsettling humor, director Denis Côté (Curling, Bestiaire) weaves a breathlessly original film that is at once a deadpan comedy, exciting revenge thriller, and complex rumination on the meaning of fate.

“The title may sound like a children’s book and the bear may be metaphoric, but make no mistake: This is a story with surprisingly great, big teeth.” – Manohla Dargis, New York Times
“A rich, humane, surprising film, Vic + Flo Saw A Bear manages to mix the drollery of Wes Anderson, the genre swagger of Tarantino or the Coen Brothers and the opaque narrative of a Bruno Dumont in one intriguing package.” – Lee Marshall, Screen Daily
