THOSE WHO MAKE REVOLUTION HALFWAY ONLY DIG THEIR OWN GRAVES
CEUX QUI FONT LES RÉVOLUTIONS À MOITIÉ N’ONT FAIT QUE SE CREUSER UN TOMBEAU
2016, 183 min, Canada, Dir: Mathieu Denis, Simon Lavoie

Though inspired by Quebec’s Maple Spring student protests in 2012, this ambitious look at the radicalization of the young could not be more timely. Gabrielle Tremblay, Emmanuelle Lussier-Martinez, Laurent Belanger and Charlotte Aubin play increasingly violent activists whose underground cell is threatened by poverty and infighting as well as by the police. “Denis and Lavoie break down this explosive chemistry element by element, but they’re not clinical about it in the least. Their film pulses with the vitality of four young people who, however flawed or foolhardy, sincerely want to change the world.” - Scott Tobias, Variety.
