Camion is the third feature by RaphaÃ«l Ouellet, and screens in the festival’s Contemporary World Cinema programme. Ouellet is a sometime collaborator of Denis CÃ´tÃ©, whose Bestiaire is also screening at TIFF this year.
Sixty-year-old widower Germain (Julien Poulin) has always been a truck driver, but when he’s involved in a head-on collision that leaves a woman dead, his remorse leaves him unable to get behind the wheel again. Though he was not at fault, his life may be irrevocably altered.
Why should you see it?
Ouellet is a master of emotional, intimate drama, and Camion recently won the Jury Prize and Best Director trophy at the Karlovy Vary film festival.
