affiche Crème glacée

Crème glacée, chocolat et autres consolations

by Julie Hivon
fiction | 2001 | 97 minutes | french

with Dorothée Berryman, Geneviève Bilodeau, Isabelle Brouillette and France Castel

In Act One, Samuel was sleeping with Ambre, Suzie had a cat and Judith was shopping around for a new religion. Life was simple. In Act Two, winter was marked by wet snow, spoiled parties, painful memories and grim days waiting for the next unemployment cheque. Life started getting very complicated. In Act Three, Judith went elsewhere to look for God, Ambre stopped sleeping with Samuel, Suzie got angry, the cat was hit by a car, and both the phone and power were cut off. In short, everything fell apart. The only ones left were Samuel and Suzie. Ice cream and chocolate weren’t comfort enough: they had to find solace, lurking in a hidden corner of their lives.
