Boris Without Beatrice Film Poster


Director: Denis Côté. Starring: James Hyndman, Simone-Élise Girard, Denis Lavant, Isolda Dychauk. Canada 2016. 93 mins. French with English subtitles. Boris Malinovsky sails through life with ruthless arrogance. But his world begins to falter when his equally successful wife, a minister in the Canadian government, is confined to her bed with depression and is cared for in their remote holiday home. There, Boris receives phone calls from a stranger who asks him to meet in the forest in the middle of the night and Boris is confronted with the kind of questions he would rather not have to think about. Combining satirical precision with puzzling tableaux, Cõté takes the viewer inside the mind of a man who is forced to confront his failures and increasingly loses control of his life. CFF 15
