The boundaries we place around animals are provocatively and formally explored in this meditation on the relationship between nature and humanity.
You never know what Canadian auteur Denis Côté will do next. How to follow an ennui-laden drama centered around curling? How about a witty essay film about animals? A tranquil, inquisitive festival hit, Bestiaire is a sublime exploration of how we look at the animals—and how they look at us.
