Synopsis

Celebrated European actor Sophie Bernard is in Montreal shooting a movie, and she’s taking the opportunity to visit her son Thomas in the hope of bridging the rift that’s grown between them. But Thomas has his own agenda for their time together; he intends to finally get some answers as to the identity of his father. Meanwhile, at Ville-Marie Hospital, paramedic Pierre struggles with PTSD, and though he has support in Marie, a nurse who keeps the overflowing emergency room running, it’s uncertain whether he’ll remain able to cope with the high intensity of his work. Each of these four characters is dealing with emotional damage — and on one dark Montreal night, their lives will all intersect in a fateful occurrence at Ville-Marie.

    Breathtaking, literally

    The movie starts with a slap in the face, it grabs you and never lets
    you go until the very end. It’s an ensemble film portrayed as a
    wonderful puzzle whose pieces all fall perfectly in place one into
    another.

    My first fear before seeing it was that Monica Bellucci would steal the
    show and make for an unequal movie, where too much focus would be on
    one character. In truth, she does stand out a bit, but the reason is
    simple : she’s an outsider, a foreign actress who comes to Montreal to
    shoot a movie, whereas most of the other characters are Montrealers
    having more ”mainstream” jobs : a student, a paramedic and a nurse.
    These 4 characters all end up in Ville-Marie hospital, for different
    reasons, hence the title of the movie.

    I was really impressed to see how the cast felt so natural, as if the
    actors were born to play these roles. I’m impressed how the scenarist
    and the director managed to give so much depth to these characters,
    which is always a concern in ensemble films, because each have much
    less screen time to build their personality.

    I’m trying, but I really can’t find much negative about this movie.
    Maybe some scenes about Aliocha Schneider’s character, Thomas, are a
    bit long… But they do serve a purpose: to build his personality.

    Watch this movie out in the film festival circuit, I predict a bright
    future for it.
