Denis Cote’s latest film Bestiaire opens at The Royal on Friday, December 7, 2012

A scene from Bestiaire

Quebecois filmmaker Denis Côté’s  Bestiaire  is not your typical documentary film. Unconventional framing techniques and extended long shots set each scene for a  mysterious exchange between animals and humans, art and representation,  subject  and  voyeur.  Check out our review of   Bestiaire .

Part of the Official selection of Sundance and the Berlin Film Festivals,  Bestiaire  has earned critical acclaim. You should go see it because Denis Côté is one of Canada’s most intriguing, yet understated filmmakers.
