Far Side of the Moon (2004)
Sobre o filme
Two brothers, Philippe and André, lead a completely separate existence. Philippe works at night as a telemarketing operator and during the day thinks only of his doctorate thesis that deals with the philosophy of scientific culture and the narcissistic motivations behind exploring space. His younger brother, André, is gay and works as a metereorologist for a local TV broadcasting station. Death of their mother means the need for reapproximation between both, invariably different and rivals in all.
The retake in contact, however, can hardly be peaceful. The brothers quarrel over the dividing up of assets and objects left by the mother, bringing back childhood memories. To make matters worse the relationship between André and his boyfriend Carl go sour and the resentment between Philippe and his ex-girlfriend Natalie, is exacerbated, The atmosphere of conflict can hardly help Philippe?s concentration to write his thesis. More than ever, his constant concern in finding a sense to the universe and discovering what his place is in it, seem essential.
This new film by Canadian Robert Lepage translates, with great inventiveness of image, the interior division of the main character and of his brother, both played by the director. The sound track is by Benoît Jutras, collaborator of the Cirque du Soleil.
